Open Society Foundations’ “Voices”: The Fight to End HIV Is Also a Fight for Women’s Rights
Julia Greenberg, director of governance and financing at the Open Society Public Health Program, discusses the implications of decriminalizing sex work and the expanded Mexico City policy for HIV/AIDS efforts and the health and rights of women. Greenberg writes, “[W]e must challenge the laws, stigma, and discrimination that undermine health and human rights and we must pull no punches. If we fail, the fight to end AIDS threatens to become a victim in the ideological war being fought against women around the world” (8/8).
