The International Community of Women living with HIV/AIDS (ICW) provides guidelines for responsible involvement of HIV positive women in medical, socioeconomic and other research concerning women living with the virus. Included are a checklist to measure the effectiveness and inclusiveness of various aspects of research methods, as well as links to further resources. This document will be particularly useful to researchers working with HIV positive populations, advocates working on issues related to participatory research, and HIV positive people considering participation in research studies.
The Center for HIV Law and Policy challenges barriers to the rights and health of people affected by HIV through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources. We support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change that is rooted in racial, gender, and economic justice.
