ARE THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN & GIRLS ADDRESSED IN JAMAICA?

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN JAMAICA AROUND WOMEN AND THE PARTNERSHIP TO END OF FORMS OF STIGMA & DISCRIMINATION: ARE THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN & GIRLS ADDRESSED?

WHY THIS WEBINAR?

Gender inequality and HIV-related stigma and discrimination make it more difficult to prevent HIV transmission among women and girls, and for women and girls living with HIV, stigma and discrimination can impact their ability to live healthy and productive lives. These two challenges are among the main reasons why AIDS remains one of the leading causes of death among women aged 15 – 49. 

Join us to find out more about what the Global Partnership to end all forms of HIV-related Stigma and Discrimination is and how it addressed the rights of women and girls in Jamaica. Reducing and ending HIV-related stigma and discrimination is impossible without addressing gender-related stigma and discrimination.
