|A Manual for Integrating the Programmes and Services of HIV and Violence Against Women|
AUTHOR: Dinys Luciano Ferdinand
During the past decade international organizations, civil society groups and governments worldwide have intensified their efforts to describe the intersections between HIV and violence against women (VAW) and to identify the best method for integrating policies and programmes addressing both pandemics. Due to methodological limitations as well as the short time in which these intersections have been studied as yet, information is limited regarding the ways in which both problems interact in their causes, outcomes and social responses. In spite of these limitations, we can affirm that the evidence is sufficient to justify an integrated approach to HIV and VAW, even as new data is produced and as we continue to learn from the interchange of experiences and practices in different countries.
