UNAIDS Executive Director, Winnie Byanyima has urged countries including Uganda to protect women’s rights to protect their health.

She further calls on leaders to fight all forms of gender-based violence if women and girls are to be protected against HIV/AIDS. 

The Ugandan politician–turned–international Aid worker in a message to mark International Women’s Day says the world is way off track to meet the gender, equality, and HIV targets that are part of the Sustainable Development Goals.

International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8th March each year.

The United Nations designated the year 2024’s theme as ‘Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress’ with a focus on addressing economic disempowerment.
