The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently created a hands-on tool to assist women in protecting themselves against the HIV/AIDS virus. This new tool was field-tested in five countries. These countries are Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Sudan and the United Republic of Tanzania. This new tool basically aims those planning and implementing AIDS programmes in the health sector to better understand the links between gender inequalities and HIV/AIDS related issues. It also aims to raise awareness of how these inequalities influence women’s access to, incorporation of, understanding, and experience with such programmes and services.
This manual has not been finalized and according to the World Health organization, will be constantly updated and revised by those who are committed to gender equality.
