The HIV/AIDS Practice in the Bureau for Development Policy has a cluster on HIV, Gender, Health and MDGs. This cluster includes UNDP’s role as co-lead UNAIDS cosponsoring agency on Gender issues. Gender inequality and harmful gender norms are not only associated with the spread of HIV but also with its consequences. Women and girls bear a disproportionate burden of responsibility for families and communities affected by HIV, and women who disclose their HIV-positive status often face greater stigma and suffer more extreme negative reactions than men. Gender norms and expectations also influence male sexuality, risk-taking and their vulnerability to HIV. While promoting gender equality is important in itself, it is also crucial to fostering more effective national HIV responses, and to ensuring broader public health and human rights goal can be achieved.
