How Do Provincial Responses in South Africa Prioritise Women, Girls and Gender Equality?

How Do Provincial Responses in South Africa Prioritise Women, Girls and Gender Equality?

Although South African Provincial Strategic Plans to address HIV generally provide comprehensive responses that prioritise women, girls and gender equality, they are weak in a number of areas. These were the findings of an assessment conducted by HEARD for the Department of Social Development which aimed to highlight policy and programmatic gaps and challenges within provincial plans. Funded by UNAIDS, and with support from the South African National AIDS Council, The Gender Equality Assessment of Provincial Strategic Plans and Provincial Operational Plans on HIV, STI and TB was launched this week in Pretoria by the Department of Social Development.
