A NEW RESOURCE: WEBSITE: WHAT WORKS FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS: EVIDENCE FOR HIV/AIDS INTERVENTIONS
A groundbreaking new resource to guide donors, policy makers and program managers in planning effective HIV/AIDS interventions for women and girls was launched by Open Society Institute (OSI) at the XVIII International AIDS Conference. What Works for Women and Girls: Evidence for HIV/AIDS Interventions is a comprehensive review of successful HIV programming for women and girls spanning 2,000 articles and reports with data from more than 90 countries.
Published by OSI's Public Health Program, this valuable resource contains—in one centralized, searchable location—the evidence of successful gender-specific programming from global programs and studies, with a focus on the Global South. “In designing HIV and AIDS programs, policymakers and program planners are faced with a wide array of possible programming. With scarce resources and growing demand for services, priorities must be based on effective interventions. What Works serves the unique function of bringing all of these topics together to provide a full range of successful gender-sensitive programming for women and girls,” says Francoise Girard, director of the Public Health Program at the Open Society Institute.
