Bangkok Consultation on HIV/AIDS and Gender-Based Violence

"This report summarizes the substance of the presentations and discussions that took place at the June 2 and 3, 2005 Consultation for HIV/AIDS and Gender Based Violence (GBV): Linking Advocacy at the Grass-Roots in China, India, Thailand and Vietnam, held at the Royal River Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand. The two-day meeting was convened to initiate an informed exchange of information, approaches and activities among those working on issues of sexuality, HIV/AIDS and GBV through a human rights framework and to facilitate a receptive climate for effective gender-sensitive violence and services as related to prevention, treatment, care, activism, and advocacy. These exchanges served to organize pilot program development on the parts of teams from India, Vietnam, Thailand, and China, with assistance from the International Health and Human Rights Program (IHHRP) at the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights (FXBC), to address the factors that make individuals vulnerable to both HIV/AIDS and Gender-Based violence over the next two years. A human rights and sexuality framework were agreed to provide a common and effective backdrop for program design and implementation. Additionally, the shared knowledge and experiences of participants working on either HIV/AIDS or GBV issues was seen to be an invaluable resource for all of the teams to learn from each other and identify effective methods of intervention for their particular set of issues, settings, and target populations."
