Improving Women’s Health: HIV, Contraception, Cervical Cancer and Schistosomiasis

Thursday, March 15, 2018

The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York

Presented By

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS)

World Health Organization (WHO)

The Microbiology & Infectious Diseases Discussion Group

 

Coinciding with the 62nd session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, this one-day symposium will advance a holistic view of sexual and reproductive health and rights to improve women’s health and well-being in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The symposium will focus on three key areas of intersection between HIV and broader sexual and reproductive health and rights; cervical cancer, hormonal contraception, and female genital schistosomiasis.  In all three areas, recent scientific advances raise the possibility of enhancing women’s health and wellbeing through closer collaboration and engagement between women, their health care providers and health programmers, and policy makers. Furthermore, lessons learned from AIDS activism and advocacy, in terms of demand creation and the right to health, can strengthen the broader community response.
