New reports from ATHENA
ATHENA and AIDS Legal Network (ALN) are happy to launch Gender, Rights and Diversity: Connecting the Pieces looking at how we can strengthen women's engagement with the Global Fund, and support the implementation of the Global Fund's gender equality strategy. The paper draws on a collaboration between ALN and ATHENA, in partnership with Access Chapter 2 (AC2), South Africa, the International Community of Women Living with HIV East Africa (ICWEA), Uganda, and the Coalition of Women Living with HIV and AIDS (COWLHA) in Malawi, which aimed to strengthen women’s engagement with the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria as it implemented a new funding model. 
 
ATHENA has also recently launched a new report from the Link Up project, in which we are a partner. HIV and sexual and reproductive health and rights: visions, voices, and priorities of young people living with and most affected by HIV. In this report, young people from around the world living with and most affected by HIV champion their vision for realizing and claiming their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and setting their priorities for HIV and SRHR integration. 
 
Community Innovation: achieving an end to gender-based violence through the HIV response was launched on International Human Rights Day, which also marks the end of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. Developed by the ATHENA Network and the Global Coalition on Women and AIDS (GCWA), with UNAIDS support, the report presents twelve case studies exploring innovative and pioneering practice to address issues of gender-based violence and HIV, whilst reflecting women in all our diversity, women’s leadership and a global approach.
