Gender Aids Forum (GAF) together with International Community of Women Living With HIV/AIDS (I.C.W) hosted a summit in Durban, KZN Province in South Africa. The theme of the summit was “Confronting Marginalization Together in the Context of HIV/AIDs” One of the marginalized groups that the summit was going to discuss was women living with HIV/AIDS in South Africa.

The organisers felt that women living with HIV/AIDS should be involved during the planning process. Their role was to develop the discussion paper that was used during the summit using their stories and experiences and which forms a part of this article. The paper was adopted and approved by women living with HIV/AIDS during the women’s caucus which was held a day before the summit. This resulted with the launch of I.C.W. – RSA.
