From the United Nations Joint Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS), Women out loud contains the latest global data on how the HIV epidemic particularly affects women, and what can be done about it. With personal insights from more than 30 women living with HIV, it highlights the role that women are playing in responding to the epidemic, from rights and gender-sensitive issues, to securing access to testing, treatment, care and support. In 2011, governments around the world committed to achieving ambitious targets by 2015, including halving the sexual transmission of HIV and ending new HIV infections among children. To achieve this, women will play a leading role - particularly those living with HIV. The report is framed around 10 targets and it measures progress, identifies challenges and opportunities, and portrays the real-world impact through the testimonies of women living with these issues. Features a foreword by Michel Sidibé, Executive Director of UNAIDS, Michelle Bachelet, Executive Director of UN Women - the newest co-sponsor of UNAIDS - and Jennifer Gatsi, Co-founder and Executive Director of the Namibian Women's Health Network.
