This AIDSFree technical brief describes the elements of programmatic approaches to strengthen community platforms to address gender equality and harmful gender norms. It draws examples from successful community platforms for addressing GBV and more specifically, from the SASA! program in Uganda designed by Raising Voices. Several studies have reported that girls’ and women’s risk of HIV infection is associated with gender inequality and violence. Harmful gender norms can lead to risky behaviors, violence, substance abuse, pursuit of multiple sexual partners, and domination of women. These norms affect not only men and women but also families and communities.
ASSIST held on the quarterly PHFS webinar in May 2016 that highlighted the soon to be released updated WHO and UNICEF HIV and Infant Feeding Guidelines. The webinar was hosted by Nigel Rollins, WHO and Tin Tin Sint, UNICEF.
