ICW/ICRW article featured in Commonwealth Secretariat Handbook (2007)
ICW, the Centre for the study of AIDS (CSA), International Center
for Research on Women (ICRW) and Realizing Rights: the Ethical Globalisation nitiative (EGI) are working with parliamentarians as part of a consortium to improve women’s access to health care in our countries: Botswana, Namibia, Kenya nd Tanzania. The aim of the Parliamentarians for Women’s Health (PWH) project is to improve parliamentarians’ understanding of the health issues that women, especially HIV-positive women, face, including barriers to accessing treatment and sexual and reproductive health facilities. This article looks at the work that Parliamentarians for Women’s Health project officer Jennifer Gatsi is carrying out in Namibia. Although the focus of the project is on women’s health in general, this article deals with the health and rights of HIV-positive women.
