Authors: UNDP India
Keywords: Women's studies;HIV/AIDS;Personal health;Sexually transmitted diseases
Issue Date: Dec-2010
Publisher: UNDP India
Description: "A review of UNGASS report, India MDG findings and feedback from FGD participants brings out that the last 5 to 10 years have borne witness to unprecedented achievements in improving access to HIV treatment. However, much remains to be done in order to achieve the two targeted MDGs. The NACP-III has not been effective in translating the principled commitment to gender equality within the national HIV response into reality. It overlooks the dynamics between gender disparities and HIV and needs to incorporate women’s issues within the national response to HIV. Furthermore, funds and efforts are largely focused on prevention than on care, support and treatment."
