To Achieve AIDS-Free Generation, More Must Be Done To Address HIV Among Young Women, Girls

Center for Strategic & International Studies: Addressing HIV Risk in Adolescent Girls and Young Women
Janet Fleischman, a senior associate with the Global Health Policy Center at CSIS, and Katherine Peck, a program coordinator and research assistant at the center, examine HIV/AIDS among young women and girls in Eastern and Southern Africa in this new report. “…After years of neglect, a global convergence is emerging around the urgency of going beyond biomedical interventions to address the social and economic factors driving HIV risk for adolescent girls and young women. Whether this new attention can catalyze reductions in new HIV infections represents a fundamental challenge for controlling the AIDS epidemic” (4/17).
