5. Experiences from other fields: implications for HIV/AIDS prevention

Improving the status of women in the household, the community and wider society opens up possibilities for women that lead to benefits for all members of society. Time and again it has been shown that given information and skills, the opportunity to use them, and some semblance of social support, women are a powerful force for development. This section provides examples of health, social and economic interventions that are sensitive to women’s needs and strenthen women’s position in communities, ultimately empowering women to decide and act to protect themselves and their families.
