Walking the talk: putting women's rights at the heart of the HIV and AIDS response

Using research from 13 countries, this report demonstrates that gender inequalities and the persistent and systematic violation of their rights are leaving women and girls disproportionately vulnerable to HIV and AIDS.

The report incorporates the voices and perspectives of women and girls using quotes and stories to bring to life the barriers they face in accessing HIV and AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support, as well as the challenges faced by women care providers. It calls upon governments in rich and poor countries, as well as multilateral organisations and civil society, to take specific steps to place women's rights at the heart of their responses to HIV and AIDS.
