"This paper is part of a larger policy analysis and advocacy effort by the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE) to promote gender and rights-based approaches to HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment worldwide, by examining the effects of U.S HIV/AIDS strategies, globally and at the country level, on women’s reproductive and sexual health and rights. This work includes conducting research and policy analysis to examine whether and how strategies supported by U.S. bi- and multilateral assistance work effectively to stem the spread of HIV infection among women and girls. Through this research, we seek to identify gaps and develop recommendations for changes in existing strategies for HIV/AIDS prevention based on approaches consistent with promoting both health and human rights, and to foster accountability of both donor and government policies through evidence-based advocacy."
