The primary objective of the e-discussion on Key Affected Women and Girls in Asia and the Pacific, from 1 to 23 February 2012, is to stimulate dialogue to ensure proper policy attention is paid to key affected women and girls in the context of HIV. The network sought input from its members to identify what must be strategized and prioritized to reach the 10 targets of the 2011 Political Declaration, especially targets 1, 3, and 7 that speak most directly to the HIV needs of women and girls. More specifically, the e-discussion sought input to clarify: who members consider to be the key affected women and girls; and what are the priority actions that need to be taken by governments and civil society to achieve the targets regarding women and girls set forth in the Political Declaration, by 2015.
More than 25 contributions were received from nine countries over the e-discussion’s three-week duration. Contributors included UN agencies, government and civil society organizations.
