Gender inequality and the failure to recognize and defend women’s human rights are realities of the daily lives of women. In many circumstances, women and girls face the most oppressive: gender inequality and unequal power relations at household and intimate relationship levels. The socio-cultural and economic factors driving the HIV epidemic have gender dimensions that are also built in the same power relations which segregate the differences in the roles and responsibilities of men/women and boys/girls.
This gender assessment was conducted to analyze the national HIV epidemic and its contexts and evaluate the degree to which the country’s response to HIV recognizes gender and its associated inequalities as key determinants of the epidemic.
