Women, trans women and girls of all cultural backgrounds and life experiences are virtually absent from the HIV/AIDS research agenda and decision-making processes. Women, trans women and girls lack access to testing, are denied testing, are under-diagnosed, are diagnosed too late for successful treatment interventions and lack access to gender specific community supports. This is exacerbated by racism, classism, misogyny, transphobia and other forms of discrimination against women.

The Blueprint for Action on Women and HIV/AIDS is a multi-sector coalition of HIV-positive women, Canadian and international HIV/AIDS organizations, and a variety of women’s and reproductive rights groups advocating for better prevention, services and supports for women and girls infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.
