In recognition of International Women’s Day and the 20th anniversary of the Stephen Lewis Foundation, we are proud to celebrate the powerful women who have been a part of the struggle to end the HIV pandemic. Every day, young girls and women in sub-Saharan Africa confront the gendered nature of the pandemic, one that leaves them twice as likely as their male peers to be living with HIV – yet they have held their communities together and continued the fight for a future free from AIDS. Read about some of the women driving change, and learn how together we can ensure power and dignity for all women.


With your support, we can dismantle inequality and ensure power and dignity for all women.
