We place women at the center of the struggle against HIV.

We believe gender equality is fundamental in achieving rights and dignity for all, including people living with HIV and their families and loved ones. Women and girls tend to be more vulnerable to the structural issues that increase their risk of acquiring HIV, including violence against women, child marriage, educational and employment disparities and commercial sex work. Poorer women in most societies, especially those living with HIV, face combined burdens from discriminatory practices and policies in obtaining education and employment, in accessing livelihoods, assets and information and basic civil participation. CARE is committed to supporting the empowerment of poor women and girls and addressing gender barriers where they live, work and raise families.
