Welcomes UNAIDS’ efforts to strengthen collaboration with networks of Women Living with HIV, women from key populations3, women’s rights and health organizations and groups of men and boys working for gender equality, and requests UNAIDS to work with governments to ensure that women, adolescent women and girls in all their diversity are meaningfully engaged in all stages of planning, implementation and monitoring and evaluation of HIV responses and related issues;
3 As defined in the UNAIDS 2011-2015 Strategy ‘Getting to Zero’, footnote n. 41: ‘Key populations, or key populations at higher risk, are groups of people who are more likely to be exposed to HIV or to transmit it and whose engagement is critical to a successful HIV response. In all countries, key populations include people living with HIV. In most settings, men who have sex with men, transgender people, people who inject drugs and sex workers and their clients are at higher risk of exposure to HIV than other groups. However, each country should define the specific populations that are key to their epidemic and response based on the epidemiological and social context’.
