The Gender Agenda

Nearly half of all people living with HIV are female – but their voices and opinions are often ignored. World AIDS Day 2004 is the culmination of a year-long campaign to highlight the need to listen to women and girls talk about the impact of HIV/AIDS on their lives.

An important aspect of the debate is whether men and women living with HIV/AIDS have equal access to the anti-retroviral drugs that can restore and prolong life. These drugs should mean that an HIV positive diagnosis is no longer an automatic death sentence for those in developing countries. But the reality is that they’re still not reaching many people in the worst-affected areas – particularly girls and women.

IWR has produced a series of features from six local journalists in Africa, Europe and China that present the personal stories of people living with HIV/AIDS who are fighting to get treatment. The Gender Agenda series will enable you to open up debate and get women and girls involved in your programmes.

Each feature has a set of broadcast notes. Additionally the Panos Global AIDS Programme (GAP) has produced the following factsheets:






A range of further resources about AIDS and Gender is available from the .

As well as the programmes listed below, you might like to browse through the 26 individual testimonies from people living with HIV in the series .

Malawi: A long way to Lilongwe

In Malawi the government has secured 196 million US dollars from the Global Fund to treat AIDS, TB and Malaria. But a shortage of medical staff across the country means that for many people, getting HIV drugs means travelling many miles.

Hilary Mbobe explores how many of them can't afford the journey to the clinic, and instead go without treatment.

Rwanda: The right to heal

Many of the women who were raped during the 1994 Rwandan genocide are now living with HIV or dying of Aids. To add to their sense of injustice, the men in international custody accused of the rapes get HIV treatment - while most victims don't.

Survivors' groups are now calling for these women to be given international priority for expensive antiretroviral drugs. IWR hears the stories of three survivors.

China: The silent epidemic

Nelson Mandela is calling on the world to recognise it cannot defeat AIDS unless it also fights tuberculosis.

At the World AIDS Conference in Bangkok this week he described the lung disease as a death sentence for those with HIV, telling delegates: "The world has made defeating AIDS a top priority. This is a blessing, but TB remains ignored."

The treatable disease is the biggest killer of HIV positive people in developing countries. But diagnosing TB is not always straightforward, as Yuen Chan reports from Nanning in Southern China.

HIV/AIDS: We want drugs

In the war against AIDS the battle to get antiretroviral drugs is not yet won. At the fifteenth International Conference on HIV and AIDS in Bangkok world leaders pledged better access to treatment for people living with HIV. But the promises are far from new.

UK Second chance for migrants

Women who would find it impossible to get HIV treatment in their own countries have managed to get a second chance in the UK. Tinoenda from Zimbabwe was visiting the United Kingdom when she discovered she was HIV-positive. Now she's taking anti-retroviral drugs and is thriving, but she knows that if she had to go back home she wouldn't be able to afford any treatment. We also hear from Eunis from Kenya. While visiting the United Kingdom, Eunis discovered she was HIV-positive and is now receiving the treatment which would be too expensive for her to afford in Kenya.
