The Big Picture: a guide for implementing HIV prevention that empowers women and girls

Download (1.88 MB)

This guide supports non-governmental organisations, community based organisations, and individuals in developing countries to develop HIV prevention strategies and activities for women and girls that promote gender equality and women’s rights. It provides ‘how-to’ information for developing a ‘transformative approach’ to HIV prevention for women and girls. Such an approach addresses key root causes of vulnerability to HIV and seeks to reshape the beliefs, attitudes and behaviours of individuals and communities in favour of women and girls and gender equality.
