The Lantos-Hyde Act revised requirements for the President’s comprehensive five-year strategy to combat global HIV/AIDS and added several requirements relating to gender. These requirements focus attention on key gender issues related to HIV/AIDS outcomes.
In response to this, the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator developed the PEPFAR Gender Framework, which calls for more rigorous strategic planning and monitoring of gender programming.
The framework also calls for more systematic and intensified gender programming, demonstrated through, among other commitments, a more strategic and explicit focus on preventing and responding to gender-based violence.
As the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator stated, “Gender-based violence, in particular, directly promotes the spread of HIV/AIDS by limiting women’s ability to negotiate sexual practices, disclose HIV status, and access medical services and counseling due to fear of GBV [gender-based violence].”
- Develop and distribute a plan or guidance to help ensure that HIV/AIDS programming systematically addresses gender-related goals.
- Establish roles and responsibilities for a mission gender focal point with input on all the mission’s HIV/AIDS activities, and appoint an individual to the position.
