Regular small cash payments to girls and young women can enable them to resist the attentions of older men and avoid HIV infection, according to a new study.
The YWCA of New Zealand/Aotearoa and Positive Women Inc., an HIV positive women’s group, have joined a unique and attractive campaign – the International Paper Dolls Campaign – which raises awareness on female condoms, as well as the education and programming needed to support their use, in a most surprising way. The campaign is funded by The Universal Access to Female Condom Joint Programme (UAFC) so as to illustrate the growing, worldwide demand for female condoms.
What Women Are Saying
"We live in a world designed to keep
real at a minimum. Global Room for Women is the first website that I've found (and I've looked) that promotes real conversations between real
people." - B. Samuel, Artist, Iowa.
"The Global Room was life changing for me. I was blown away! I am usually not impressed by these kinds of teleconferences but thought GRW was wonderful. It made me feel not so alone on this planet." - A. Olivier, Texas
"I am trying to find ways to change the world I inherited. The only way is through other people. The GRW feeds that part of me that needs to be opened and wants ideas and mutual experience to face the immense challenges. "
- M.Levy, Activist, Wisconsin
