What Works Association and Population Council released the “Gender Considerations Along the HIV Treatment Cascade: An Evidence Review with Priority Actions”. This study shows the impact of gender dynamics on treatment access and adherence. The brief also includes action that can be taken to better adress within treatment programming. The study uses the WHO treatment cascade framework to identify and analyze major gender considerations in providing antiretroviral therapy to those living with HIV in low- and middle-income countries.
Furthermore, What Works announced an updated Treatment section of the award-winning web resource What Works for Women and Girls: Evidence for HIV/AIDS Interventions (www.whatworksforwomen.org). This update includes the latest evidence for HIV treatment research and programming, providing overviews of current issues and the most up-to-date evidence for What Works and Promising
interventions, as well as critical gaps, across three areas: Provision and Access, Adherence and Support & Staying Healthy and Reducing Transmission.
