By comparing across countries in the region, and across HIV-affected and non-affected households, the analysis provides unique insights into the dynamics of the epidemic and improved understanding of the specific impact HIV has on women and girls. It highlights the many differences between countries in the region, but also the numerous similarities, and therefore how they might learn from one another.
