SheDecides Movement Vital To Addressing, Preventing HIV Among Women, Girls

Avert: #SheDecides — a movement for women’s empowerment for HIV prevention
Sarah Hand, CEO of Avert, writes, “The power of SheDecides is its emphasis on gender equality and gender empowerment. It’s a movement born out women recognizing their sexual and reproductive health rights in the era of the [global gag rule]. SheDecides also links these rights with the wider Sustainable Development Goals, including HIV prevention. … We need to make sure that every girl and young woman has the knowledge and freedom to make that future one that is free of HIV” (3/2).
