Abstract

"In April and May of 2005, UNFPA and EngenderHealth, in collaboration with the International Community of Women Living with HIV/AIDS (ICW), Ipas and the Program on International Health and Human Rights at Harvard University’s FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, hosted two parallel electronic discussion fora on the subject of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) policies, services and human rights for HIVpositive women. One forum, moderated by Harvard and Ipas, was open to all professionals and women with HIV/AIDS, with over 300 individuals invited to participate from a wide variety of international women’s health, human rights, HIV advocacy and development organizations...The other forum, moderated by ICW, was open only to HIVpositive women, to ensure the existence of a "safe space" to confidentially discuss experiences; invitees were members of ICW’s vast international network."
