Patti Boulaye at UNAIDS Launch

Over 20 eminent women and men including Patti Boulaye the President/Founder of SFA have united to create The Global Coalition on Women and AIDS. The UNAIDS initiative aims to stimulate action on a number of fronts, including violence against women, HIV prevention for girls, and greater access to HIV care and treatment. The initiative was launched in London on Mon, 2 February 04.

Patti says I hope this coalition will not be another talking shop but will also provide practical and effective help that will promote mutual respect and a global sense of responsibility between men and women in the fight against AIDS.

The Global Coalition on Women and AIDS is a new initiative made up of activists, government representatives, community workers and celebrities, that seek to stimulate concrete action on the ground to improve the daily lives of women and girls. Launched in London on 2 February 2004, its efforts will focus on preventing new HIV infections among women and girls, promoting equal access to HIV care and treatment, accelerating microbicides research, protecting women's property and inheritance rights and reducing violence against women.
