Issue 2: Facilitate the launch of “know your rights” campaigns, and support the provision of free and accessible legal aid services to enable women and girls to claim their rights.
Issue 3: Advocate for government and/or country coordinating mechanisms to set quotas or targets (at least 40% of positions) for women with necessary expertise to ensure that the needs and views of women and girls are adequately reflected in the national HIV response.
