Devex Examines Need For Focus On Women, Girls In AIDS Efforts

“Although the international development community has scored significant wins in the battle against HIV and AIDS, interventions to protect most at-risk populations — including women and girls — have fallen short,” Devex reports. The news service examines “what makes women and girls more susceptible to contracting HIV” and includes comments from Elisha Dunn-Georgiou, Population Action International’s vice president of programs, and Elise Young, Women Thrive Worldwide’s vice president of policy and government affairs (Parmanand, 12/3).
