Abstract: This policy brief begins, in Chapter 1, with an analysis of the gender inequalities that drive vulnerability to HIV infection for women, girls and vulnerable men. Chapter 2 makes recommendations for a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to HIV prevention that takes full account of the gender inequalities that lead to vulnerability to HIV & AIDS. Chapter 3 explores good practice in relation to gender-sensitive HIV prevention policy and programming, and Chapter 4 explores the need for policy accountability, both in terms of holding governments and institutions to account for the policy commitments they have made and in addressing gaps in policy and practice. The brief ends, in Chapter 5, with demands that key stakeholders must respond to in order to enable universal access to comprehensive, gender-sensitive, evidence-based HIV prevention information and services for all.
