Global AIDS donors have both an opportunity and a responsibility to ensure that HIV/AIDS programs take into account gender-related issues; failure to do so will seriously undermine their efforts to slow the epidemic. But how are the three major global HIV/AIDS programs performing? A new study by CGD’s HIV/AIDS Monitor reviewed gender-related activities of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund), and the World Bank’s Africa Multi-Country AIDS Program (the MAP). Bottom line: they talk the talk but sometimes stumble when it comes to walking the walk.
This brief shows how three of the biggest donors to global HIV/AIDS programs can go beyond their stated commitments to address gender inequality and more effectively combat HIV and AIDS.
