This booklet is a contribution to understanding how CEDAW can be put to work immediately to ensure that gender equality become a guiding principle in the fight against HIV and AID and fight not only to recognise women’s human rights but mirror them in legislation, decision making and all policies and plans and budgets.

In all the critical areas of addressing HIV from a gendered perspective, whether health care, women’s leadership or negotiating safer sex, CEDAW provides the guiding human rights principles and directives.
