By: Allison Carter, CHIWOS

As millions celebrate International Women's Day this March 8, it's worth reflecting on where gaps remain in addressing gender issues in the spread of and response to HIV.

The face of HIV has changed dramatically since the early years of the epidemic. Women now represent more than half of all people living with HIV worldwide. In Canada, women also bear a growing burden of HIV - about one-quarter of HIV infections are among women, nearly double the proportion observed in 1999.

LGBTI Rights

E-mail Print PDF

On Monday, February 24 Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni passed into law the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, making homosexuality punishable with life imprisonment. Persons living with HIV who engage in a sexual relationship are also subject to life imprisonment. In addition to these horrendous laws, it is now illegal to  aid or abet another person to engage in acts of homosexuality. The passing of the Ant-Homosexuality Bill will have a devastating impact on Uganda’s HIV prevention and treatment efforts. Below is a collection of articles, opinion pieces and statements in reaction to Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill as well as other related issues around LGBTI rights globally.
