Ending HIV-Related Health Care Disparities for Women, 30 for 30 Campaign, March 2012.
The 30 for 30 Campaign briefing paper "Ending HIV-Related Health Care Disparities for Women," is a compilation of the most recent data on issues leading to the stark HIV-related health care disparities facing women today. With analysis and recommendations to strengthen and implement policies and programs that we know work for women from the broad range of organizations and individuals that make up the 30 for 30 Campaign this briefing paper, along with the companion briefing papers "Making HIV Prevention Work for Women," and "Making HIV Care and Treatment Work for Women," make up a cutting edge advocacy portfolio for those working to improve the lives of women living with and affected by HIV.
This paper highlights the major health disparities experienced by women and girls living with HIV and at high risk of HIV, and proposes actions that can be taken at the federal level to ameliorate them in the near future. The evidence base supporting these proposed actions is summarized briefly in this paper and reviewed in greater depth in Making HIV Prevention Work for Women and Making HIV Care and Treatment Work for Women. This paper focuses directly on three essential areas of action that, if taken now, could demonstrate to women the value of NHAS' promise to show that "serious progress can be made in reducing HIV-related health disparities."
