The National Accelerated Plan for Women, Girls, Gender Equality and HIV (2010-2014) makes numerous references to the relation between HIV/AIDS and Gender-Based Violence (GBV), especially at p. 28 of the document.
Some of the recommendations of the plan (found in p. 35) regarding HIV/AIDS and GBV are as follows:
- Facilitate women to know their rights and access comprehensive medical, legal, and social support for services for sexual and gender based violence.
- Train police and community leaders on GBV and HIV and support them to protect and promote the rights of women and girls experiencing violence.
- Scale-up community sensitization on GBV and HIV, and develop programs to address norms and behaviors that promote violence against women.
- Accelerate the provision of a minimum package of support to female orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) and provide them with education and empowerment opportunities.
