UNAIDS: Stand together on International Women’s Day
“…Every hour, 50 young women are newly infected with HIV. Half of all people living with HIV in low- and middle-income countries are women — and new HIV infections among women are on the rise in Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. Women must be free to make decisions about their health, lives and futures. On this International Women’s Day, let’s all stand up for women, together we can make it happen” (3/8).
