This qualitative study focuses on the experiences and perspectives of HIV-positive women living in Fiji and Papua New Guinea. The purpose of the study is to give voice to women living with HIV and to allow their stories and views to inform an improved HIV response where the dignity of each and every woman and man is respected and protected. This publication expands upon the knowledge and data of HIV in the Pacific Islands Region as it explores the experiences of women living with HIV in Fiji and Papua New Guinea, the type of services that are available to these women, the impact of gender inequality on their lives and how to develop recommendations that will improve their access to services and prevent the spread of HIV.
