Consolidated guideline on sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV

The starting point for this guideline is the point at which a woman has learnt that she is living with HIV, and it therefore covers key issues for providing comprehensive sexual and reproductive health and rights-related services and support for women living with HIV. As women living with HIV face unique challenges and human rights violations related to their sexuality and reproduction within their families and communities, as well as from the health-care institutions where they seek care, particular emphasis is placed on the creation of an enabling environment to support more effective health interventions and better health outcomes.

This guideline is meant to help countries to more effectively and efficiently plan, develop and monitor programmes and services that promote gender equality and human rights and hence are more acceptable and appropriate for women living with HIV, taking into account the national and local epidemiological context. It discusses implementation issues that health interventions and service delivery must address to achieve gender equality and support human rights.

Global Accelerated Action for the Health of Adolescents (AA-HA!)

WHO launched in May the long-awaited Global Accelerated Action for the Health of Adolescents (AA-HA!): Guidance to Support Country Implementation. Click here for the press-release and other resources. This is a guidance to operationalize the adolescent component of the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health (2016-2020). Interestingly, this new guidance moves away from entry points for adolescent health, as HIV and SRH, to address broader adolescent health issues.  Click here to access the AA-HA! guidance document.
