“Women are one of the fastest growing population groups at risk for HIV infection but research among this group is limited.

Recent research has focussed on reducing sexual transmission of HIV; these studies are of particular interest for those involved in the care of women at risk of HIV e.g. women with an HIV-positive partner. It is important that we highlight this research and encourage additional studies to address the many challenges facing women at risk of HIV” said Dr Mona Loutfy, Associate Professor at the University of Toronto, and Infectious Diseases Specialist and Clinician Scientist at Women’s College Hospital, Toronto, Canada.

Women for Positive Action is committed to raising awareness of the need to bridge the existing research gaps with the ultimate goal of improving the lives of women living with HIV.
