This institute focused on current knowledge regarding HIV and women over the life course in a global context: epidemiology, pathogenesis, transmission and prevention, women-centered HIV treatment, and gender inequalities. Our emphasis was on social aspects, including gender-based vulnerabilities and empowerment, and on most at-risk populations, such as adolescents. The institute presented state-of-the art approaches to women’s HIV prevention: discussions emphasized a holistic approach that includes men/ partners, families, and communities as key influences on HIV-infected and at-risk women. The institute took a multidisciplinary team approach to understanding these complex issues in both resource-rich and resource-poor settings.
