The short explanation of this alert was:

Women and young girls presently comprise more than 60% of those who are living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa - and the numbers are continuing to grow. Any solution to the epidemic must acknowledge the devastating gender dynamics of AIDS and place women's empowerment at the center of programming and planning.

Presently, the global response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic is failing women, in particular, the current ABC approach to prevention. Physicians for Human Rights' Health Action AIDS Campaign is committed to mobilizing health professionals in support of a response that goes "Beyond ABC." To ensure protection of women's rights, programs and initiatives must address root causes of HIV/AIDS transmission such as widespread gender-based violence, stigma and discrimination, as well as inequalities and violations of economic, social, legal, health and educational rights.
