Tuesday, July 24, 4:45pm to 5:45pm, Main Stage, Women’s Networking Zone (WNZ)
What Works for Women & Girls: Advocacy Workshop for Gender Sensitive Interventions: This highly interactive, practical workshop invites participants to answer the question: how do you advocate for an evidence-based, gender-sensitive response to the HIV epidemic in your country? Participants are encouraged to come with data about the epidemic in their country, including who is most at risk and the conditions for women and girls living with HIV. Participants will leave with concrete strategies and tools to more effectively advocate for gender-specific programming and policies in their countries.

Messages that Matter: Reaching the World’s Women with Effective, Evidence-Based HIV Prevention Strategies (WESA06): This session will promote cross-learning and highlight why prevention strategies for women must be different than those for men, what is working for women within the US and internationally to reduce risk of HIV infection, and how emerging structural and biomedical strategies can play a role in future prevention efforts for women.
Thursday, July 26, 7:00am to 8:30am, Mini Room 1
From Evidence to Programming: Gender and Gender-Based Violence in the HIV and AIDS Response (THSA02): The session will discuss evidence on addressing gender-based violence (GBV) in HIV programming, and review how the evidence is being put into practice through guidelines and programs.

This session will complement the US Government session on PEPFAR GBV program guidance by discussing the “why” behind the guidance.
