CPD article: HIV and women’s health

While antiretroviral therapy has transformed medical outcomes many challenges remain. Globally HIV/ AIDS is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among women aged 15–49 years. Women, including transgender women, may be particularly vulnerable to HIV infection for a host of reasons, including biological, economical, educational, political and social factors. In addition many women also encounter a range of gender specific challenges to HIV treatment and management of their sexual and reproductive health.
