National Survey on Women’s Health and Life Experiences 2014 – A Study on Violence against Women. National Commission for the Advancement of Women, Laos Statistics Bureau, UNFPA, UN Women and WHO. (2015)

immage

There is growing recognition globally and also in Lao PDR that VAW is a serious public health problem and a violation of women’s human rights. Yet in Lao PDR, VAW is culturally tolerated. According to the Lao Social Indicator Survey (LSIS) 2011-2012, 58% of women and 49% of men reported that VAW was justified if women did not adhere to traditional gender norms, roles and relations. However, this finding only sheds a small amount of light onto the true scale of the problem. Although small-scale studies have been undertaken on VAW, no comprehensive and extensive nationwide study has followed. Against this background, the National Study on Women’s Health and Life Experiences 2014 was conducted to collect much needed evidence to develop an effective policy-making response to the issue.

Progress of the World Women 2015-2016 - Transforming Economies, Realizing Rights. UN Women. (2015)

immage

Twenty years after the landmark Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, and at a time when the global community is defining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the post-2015 era, the global consensus on the need to achieve gender equality seems stronger than ever before. Empowering women and girls is among the goals aspired to by all, from grassroots organizations, trade unions and corporations, to Member States and intergovernmental bodies. But how far has this consensus been translated into tangible progress on the ground, and what more is needed to bridge the gaps between rhetoric and reality?

 

Drawing on promising experiences from around the world, this Report proposes a comprehensive agenda for key policy actors— including gender equality advocates, national governments and international agencies—to make human rights a lived reality for all women and girls.

2014 Progress Report on the Global Plan. UNAIDS. (2014)

immage

This report reflects the results of data for the calendar year 2013. For the first time since the 1990s, the number of new HIV infections among children in the 21 Global Plan priority countries1 in sub-Saharan Africa dropped to under 200 000 [170 000–230 000]. This represents a 43% decline in the number of new HIV infections among children in these 21 countries since 2009, providing reasons for optimism as the Global Plan pushes towards its 2015 goals of 90% reduction. However, there are also reasons for concern. Between 2012 and 2013 the pace of progress in reducing new HIV infections among children across the priority countries slowed substantially. While a number of countries made impressive gains, others stagnated or lost ground.

Annual Report 2014. UN Women. (2015)

immage

UN Women Asia-Pacific worked in 2014 across 32 countries regionally in collaboration with governments, civil society organizations, the private sector and the UN system. Our work reached the most marginalized women and girls by tackling stark and rising inequalities and multiple forms of discrimination. We utilized a range of approaches: partnering with governments in their programmes to advance women’s rights; supporting feminist and women’s movements to exert influence in policy decisions; encouraging greater contributions of men as gender equality advocates; and advocating for increased investments to realize gender equality. This Annual Report, the first to be produced by the UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, documents this work.

Gender Matters: Overcoming Gender-related Barriers to Prevent New HIV Infections among Children and Keep their Mothers Alive. UNAIDS. (2014)

immage

Approximately 660 children globally are estimated to acquire HIV every day, mostly during pregnancy, birth or breastfeeding. If pregnant women living with HIV and their children both have timely and continued access to antiretroviral medicines, it is possible to reduce new HIV infections among children to less than 5%. Furthermore, enrolment in services to prevent new HIV infections among children is increasingly being seen as an opportunity to enable women to access HIV treatment and care for their own health and well-being.
