In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, one in two women is a victim of gender-based violence. This puts women and girls at a higher risk of contracting HIV. In this video, Dr. Denis Mukwege, Nobel Peace Prize Winner for his work to end sexual violence, stresses that investing in the health, rights and well-being of women can lift up communities and countries. He urges the world to step up the fight to end HIV and violence against women and girls.
