Investing in HER to end HIV

Sheryl Sandberg, Christine Lagarde, Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Her Excellency Monica Geingos and many others are speaking out in support of HER. Every day, over 1,000 adolescent girls and young women are infected with HIV. In the hardest hit countries, girls account for more than 80 percent of new infections among adolescents. Gender inequality, violence and limited access to education fuel the epidemic. But by working together, we can support adolescent girls and young women to become healthy, empowered and financially independent women who are free to fulfill their potential. HER – HIV Epidemic Response – aims to scale up programs to urgently reduce infection rates. Together, we can change the course of the epidemic and keep the next generation free from HIV.
