|From Talk to Action: Review of Women, Girls and Gender Equality in NSPs in Southern and Eastern Africa|
AUTHOR: E. Crone, A. Gibbs, and S. Willan
From Talk to Action is an analysis of all 20 countries in southern and eastern Africa assessing how they scored against the Framework on Women, Girls and Gender Equality in National Strategic Plans on HIV and AIDS in Southern and Eastern Africa. It highlights that the majority (16 out of 20) of National Strategic Plans on HIV and AIDS in the region fail to comprehensively address women, girls and gender equality. Where the National Strategic Plans on HIV and AIDS do address women and girls, it is in the context of the prevention of vertical transmission services programmes. This report clearly identified the current weaknesses in the response to women and girls in the context of HIV and AIDS.
