HIV Prevention for Girls and Young Women

Supportive legal and policy frameworks relating to HIV prevention are in place and are relatively comprehensive, although the impressive policy rhetoric does not always reflect the reality experienced by girls and young women.

A series of national Report Cards on HIV prevention for girls and young women report on progress toward achieving global policy commitments, particularly those outlined in the Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS from the 2 June 2006 High-Level Meeting, to follow up on the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on AIDS. 

The Report Cards summarize the current situation of HIV prevention strategies and services for girls and young women ages 15-24 years in various countries. They also provide recommendations for key stakeholders to enhance action on HIV prevention strategies and services for girls and young women.
