Obstetric fistula is a beacon of inequality, as it occurs where women are already living with limited resources and access to healthcare. Additionally, once fistula occurs, women often face significant stigma and isolation which can impact their social and economic wellbeing. https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1364605591528886273

Sexual and Reproductive Health for HIV-Positive Women and Adolescent Girls

Sexual and reproductive rights apply to all individuals, regardless of their HIV status. Yet more often than not, the rights of HIV-positive women and adolescent girls are not recognized orgiven priority. As a result, sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services for HIV-positive women and adolescent girls often are limited in scope, access, and quality—where they exist at all.

Yet with HIV-related care and treatment services becoming more accessible, HIV-positive women and adolescent girls are regaining their health, living longer, and planning for their future. This includes making decisions about their sexuality and about the possibility of starting or expanding a family. To do so, HIV-positive women and adolescent girls need to access high-quality SRH services that also take into account their particular needs.

Developed in collaboration with the International Community of Women Living with HIV (ICW), Sexual and Reproductive Health for HIV-Positive Women and Adolescent Girls: A Manual for Trainers and Programme Managers provides information and a structure for a four-day training and a two-day planning workshop. These will enable program managers and health workers to provide comprehensive, nonjudgmental, and high-quality SRH care and support to HIV-positive women and adolescent girls. The manual is designed for a local context with limited resources. The manual also urges male involvement, promotes a holistic approach to integrated SRH counseling, and emphasizes program planning that links SRH and HIV and AIDS services. The manual was field-tested in Brazil, Ethiopia, and Ukraine.
