Access to Treatment Options for Women Living with HIV

In 2017, WHO published the Consolidated Guideline on the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) of women living with HIV. It is a ground-breaking document as it robustly engaged women living with HIV and their networks, covering key concerns and priorities of women living with HIV.

Despite this guideline, women continue to face challenges in accessing treatment options. There is extensive evidence to support this. Barriers to access and ‘options’ are even more visible over recent months, following mixed reactions to the WHO warning on May 18, 2018 citing a potential risk of neural tube defects (NTDs) in babies born to women taking DTG during conception and pregnancy in Botswana.

The Salamander Trust, supported by UNAIDS, is hosting a webinar to discuss the following agenda:

• What is the situation?
• What advocacy has taken place nationally and/or globally?
• Where are we now and what is still required?
