Diamonds - Stories of Women from the Asia Pacific Network of People Living with HIV. APN+ and UNIFEM (2009)

2009 Diamonds_APN_19.2

This is a compilation of stories about the lives of women living with HIV in the Asia-Pacific region. Each woman has overcome incredible challenges to become a strong leader, advocate and role model for other HIV-positive women. These women are like diamonds, formed under immense pressure, hewn from the darkness to shine, strongest and most brilliant of all gems. Interviewing these women and crafting their stories has been one of the most joyous tasks I could have undertaken. I know each woman to some extent because they have all attended at least one of the training workshops I have conducted in the region and several have become my close friends.

Domestic Violence against Women in Cambodia: Husband’s Control, Frequency of Spousal Discussion, and Domestic Violence Reported by Cambodian Women. Eng, S., Li, Y., Mulsow, M., & Fischer, J. (2009)

Gender Differences in KAP Related to HIV/AIDS among Freshmen in Afghan University. Mansoor AB, Fungladda W, Kaewkungwal J, et al (2008)

This study sought to examine the effects of husband’s control and frequency of spousal discussion on domestic violence against Cambodian married women, using the 2005 Cambodia Demographic and Health Survey data. The sample included 1,707 married women, aged 16 49 (M=35.14). Structural Equation Modeling showed that husband’s control positively predicted both emotional and physical violence. Frequency of spousal discussion positively predicted emotional violence, an association consistent with the idea that a husband holding patriarchal beliefs would interpret women’s more frequent discussion as a violation of Cambodian norms for quiet, submissive wives.

Integrating Gender into HIV/AIDS Programmes in the Health Sector: Tool to Improve Responsiveness to Women’s Needs.

This meeting brought experts on gender and HIV/AIDS together with national AIDS programme managers to discuss how gender could be addressed more systematically within existing HIV health sector programmes. The participants recognized that for this goal to be achieved it was necessary to produce an operational tool for programme managers, and to address specific types of HIV/AIDS programmes.
