Join us for the next #AIDS2016 Twitter chat focusing on HIV among girls and women 1JUN at 10am EST and 4pm CEST.
Girls and young women account for 71 percent of new HIV infections among adolescents in sub-Saharan Africa. What puts them at greater risk for HIV infection, and how can we meaningfully address these factors? How can we scale up access to HIV prevention and treatment when gender inequality continues to limit sexual and reproductive health and rights for women and girls?
The next #AIDS2016 Twitter chat will focus on the heavy burden of HIV among girls and women. Taking place on the heels of Women Deliver, the world’s largest convening on the health, rights and wellbeing of girls and women, this digital event will take the issues raised at Women Deliver and ask how we can address them in the context of HIV. Join us for a global discussion to keep these issues on the agenda as we gear up for AIDS 2016 in Durban, South Africa.
