About Women NOW!
Greetings from the Women Now team!
Women Now! 2018, will be in Amsterdam from 20 – 22 July 2018 at the Beurs van Berlage
Plans are moving ahead and time is of the essence. We are working extremely hard and fast to ensure the success of this important meeting.
The summit will address critical areas of concern for women’s human rights, including key issues of race, financial status, gender equality, women’s empowerment, gender-based trauma, violence, sexual and reproductive health, rights and justice. The summit aims to establish concrete advocacy, research and programme outcomes, and provide a clear action plan in moving aspects of women centered HIV, Sexual & Reproductive Health & Justice agenda forward during the International AIDS Conference 2018.
We need this meeting at this time because making women and girls, especially Black women and girls, a more focused priority in the multi-sectoral global response to HIV is at a critical juncture in the current advancement of prevention technology and advocacy. Our inability to have a global collective voice for the women who bear the brunt of the epidemic around the world will hinder the best chances we have to help women and girls reach the finish line on HIV the same time as men will.
