Call for case studies on the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV
The Department of Reproductive Health and Research (RHR) of the World Health Organisation (WHO) is developing a consolidated Guideline on the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV. WHO would like to include in the Guideline some illustrative case studies, highlighting innovative and successful policies and programmes in this area.
Through this call, WHO is requesting interested individuals, as well as international and national organizations, civil society networks, NGOs, and other entities which manage or implement policies and programmes for women living with HIV, to submit relevant case studies that have demonstrated successful approaches to service delivery and uptake, (optional 1 or 2 illustrating photographs), to WHO for its consideration for selection and inclusion in the Guideline.
