English: PDF [1.5MB]

Summary

Because violence against women and HIV/AIDS are mutually reinforcing pandemics, the need and the opportunity for integrated approaches addressing their intersection is increasingly evident. Together We Must! is organized around four strategies for tackling the intersection: community mobilization to transform harmful gender norms; engagement of marginalized groups that are often more vulnerable to the twin pandemics; development of integrated approaches to support and care; and advocacy for greater accountability among funding agencies and policy makers. Together, these strategies offer lessons and promising practices for other organizations and highlight the need for formal evaluations of initiatives to better understand and enhance their impact.
