13 - 15, July 2016 | Hilton Hotel, Durban, South Africa
About Women Now!
Women Now! 2016 will provide an opportunity to assess the content and execution of the International AIDS Conference 2016. The Pan African Women's Summit will provide an opportunity to assess the content and execution of the IAC for its meaningful inclusion of women's and girls' sexual & reproductive health and justice, especially women and girls of African descent, who bear the brunt of the HIV pandemic among women worldwide. The summit will address critical areas of concern for women’s human rights, through an intersectional lens, including key issues of race, economic status, gender equality, women’s empowerment, gender-based trauma and violence, and sexual and reproductive health, rights and justice.
The purpose of the programme is to support the attendance of individuals whose abstract has been selected for presentation in the programme, who are most able to transfer the skills and knowledge acquired there to their work and community representatives who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend the conference.
A very limited number of scholarships will be awarded on the basis of their letter of motivation.
