Malaysia: Violence against Women and ICT, Association for Progressive Communications (APC), Kee, J. & Randhawa, S. (2009)

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

Information and communication technologies (ICT) are changing the ways women experience and confront violence. Despite this, there has been little attention paid to issues arising from the intersection of ICT and violence against women. The APC WNSP regards this intersection as a critical site of intervention both for women’s rights activists and those working in the ICT development and policy arena. In this context, the APC WNSP commissioned the following overview paper as part of its 12-country project, “Strengthening women's organisations use of ICTs to end violence against women and girls” supported by the Dutch government's MDG3 Fund to promote gender equality and women's empowerment.

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

The Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development (APWLD) has been facilitating consultations with the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women, its causes and consequences (UNSRVAW) since 1995, following the inception of the UNSRVAW mandate and appointment of the first Rapporteur in 1994. These annual consultations provide an important forum for women from the region to contribute to the UNSRVAW mandate by detailing the regional specificities of violence against women in the Asia Pacific. The consultations strengthen the capacity of women’s organisations to engage with the United Nations (UN) Special Procedures mechanism and provide an opportunity for women to collaborate with other women’s rights activists in the region.

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