Abstract: As USAID and PEPFAR-funded programmes increasingly insist on the ABC approach, in particular one that focuses on the A and B but leaves out the C, HIV-positive women from Uganda, Zimbabwe and Namibia concur that this approach is failing women and are now demanding a different approach to sexual and reproductive rights. The women converged at the International AIDS Conference in August 2006 in Toronto, during a dialogue organized by the International Community of Women living with HIV/AIDS (ICW). Approximately 50 people attended the session. The session was coordinated by four ICW members, but the discussion was interactive and participants were both HIV-positive and negative women and men.
