Women represent more than half of all people living with HIV worldwide. The combination of social and political inequalities, lack of access to sexual and reproductive health and rights, and severe poverty renders women and girls disproportionately vulnerable to the virus. Despite this, there are few programs aimed at curbing the pandemic's spread that accurately reflect the realities of women's lives. Additionally, the same factors that make women vulnerable to HIV put them at risk for other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including human papillomavirus (HPV), the most common STI in the world and a cause of cervical cancer.
