Event description: 

Many of the drivers of gender inequality in the HIV epidemic are the same as those driving inequality in the COVID-19 pandemic. During the COVID-19 pandemic, women and girls are at heightened risk of domestic violence and inadequate access of essential health care including HIV prevention and sexual and reproductive health services. To better prepare for the future, during this conversation we will discuss the imperative to address the underlying social factors like gender inequality that exacerbate these pandemics.
The event is generously supported by the George Herbert Walker, Jr. Lecture Fund in International Studies at the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale, and is organized in partnership with the Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA) at Yale University.
