GlobalPOWER Women Network Africa Summit Partnership of Women Elected and appointed representatives
GlobalPOWER Women Network Africa is a network of Women Elected and Appointed representatives which seeks to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment. It promotes discussion of accelerated action for women empowerment and gender equality in the area of HIV and Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights, in Africa, focusing on the vulnerability of girls and young women. In Africa, the vulnerability of women and girls to HIV remains extremely high; with 59% of all people living with HIV being women. The prevailing gender inequalities – and gender based-violence among other factors increases women and girls’ risk of HIV.
The Global POWER Women Network Africa has organised a high-level meeting to generate action for women’s empowerment and the advancement of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of women and girls on the 24-25 May at The Harare International Conference Centre. The outcome of the meeting will be a “Harare Call to Action” to reaffirm the Global POWER Women Network Africa’s commitment to the key issues related to women and girls.
