New Publication! Addressing HIV in Canada and Globally: Lessons Learned from the Field

E-mail Print PDF

In recognition of International Women's Day, it is with great pleasure that we share with you our newest ICAD publication titled,
Addressing HIV in Canada and Globally: Lessons Learned from the Field. This resource features innovative projects led by ICAD members including, Rooftops Canada, Handicap International, Help Lesotho, CARE Canada, and World University Service Canada (WUSC).

Lessons2015 EN-FINAL_Page_01Much of ICAD's core programming focuses on helping Canadians contribute to the global HIV response while also ensuring that the lessons learned from partners around the world are accessible and inform strategies to strengthen prevention, treatment, care and support work across regions and communities in Canada.

It is with this objective in mind that this publication has been developed. Building on ICAD's extensive history of twinning, knowledge exchange and capacity development, Addressing HIV in Canada and Globally offers us programmatic approaches, insights, and lessons learned in responding to complex social and structural factors that continue to disempower and drive HIV infection rates globally. While the focus of these case studies often speaks to HIV programming, the lessons presented here can easily be applied to other sexually transmitted and blood borne infections (STBBIs) and settings, including in Canada, to ensure that no one is left behind.

Commission on the Status of Women
Fifty-ninth session 9-20 March 2015
Follow-up to the Fourth World Conference on Women and to the special session of the General Assembly entitled "Women 2000: gender equality, development and peace for the twenty-first century"

Statement by the Civil Society Working Group on AIDS and Development[1], a coalition of civil society organizations advocating on health priorities, including issues for people living with and vulnerable to HIV, particularly women, younger women, adolescents, and girls.

As civil society organizations advocating for effective health policies and programs, particularly within the HIV response, we recognize the importance of the contributions by the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) on the post-2015 development agenda. We also recognize the significant advances made in by MDGs 5 and 6. However, on the eve of the 59th session of the CSW, which will review triumphs and challenges in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, we note with discouragement that HIV have been forgotten in setting the agenda for this important event. Those of us engaged in improving the lives of those living with HIV, particularly women and girls, and working towards an end of AIDS note that as of February 23, 2015, the updated version of the CSW political declaration includes no meaningful reference to HIV, in spite of it being well documented during the Beijing +20 review meeting in December 2014 and regional review meetings across the globe.

HIV, Gender, Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights and the Post 2015 Development Agenda

In 2015, the implementation period of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will come to an end, and a new sustainable development framework will be ushered in to cover the period of 2015-2030. The Post-2015 development framework provides an opportunity to build on the MDGs and to address its shortcomings. The process leading up to the development of this new paradigm has been complex. This fact sheet aims to shed some light on the process, including civil society involvement and to highlight where HIV, gender and sexual and reproductive health rights fit into the Post-2015 agenda.
