Gender and Development for Cambodia is pleased to inform a training on
“Gender Based Violence and HIV and AIDS” to Reproductive Health
Association of Cambdodia (RHAC).
The aim of the training is to build the
capacity of the project staffs to respond to the needs to changes for
women and girls and men and boys living with HIV to participate fully in
and access of HIV-related services.
Participants are able to identify the
gender issues in Khmer social and culture norms, and to identify
positive norms to promote gender in Cambodia;
Identify the impact in area of HIV/AIDS
link with masculinity and gender based violence (GBV) and possible
intervention and solution related to PLHIV; and
Participants are able to apply
effective methods of HIV/AIDS and gender education in the project
activities, and to advocate removal of barriers with local authority,
health providers, and community people.
Over half (55%) of the cumulative HIV
infection cases in the country are among females, prevention coverage
for men who have sex with men and transgender people remains inadequate
(Ministry of Health/NCHADS, 2013b), and there is an urgent need to
reduce loss to follow-up along the cascade of services for eliminating
mother-to-child transmission of HIV (Sovannarith et al, 2012).
These facts indicate gender differences
in the utilization of HIV services by different groups of men and women,
particularly among most-at risk populations and people living with HIV.
It also suggests that despite Cambodia’s impressive gains in reducing
HIV rates, more needs to be done to ensure women and men, girls and boys
are able to access a comprehensive range of HIV services (Gender
Assessment Report-HIV Services-Cambodia 14 November 2013).

Over 10,000 events took place on the ground and the campaign took over media and social media worldwide for 48 hours, trending in 7 countries – 4 times in the US alone. The wildly successful grassroots campaign was covered widely by media in all corners of world including The New York Times, The Guardian, NPR, and many more.

In the words of Eve Ensler, the founder of V-Day movement and champion of women’s rights, “Why is dance important? I think most of us women, we don’t wear what we want, go where we want (at anytime of the day), we don’t move the way we want because we are always afraid at some level of being attacked or harassed, or hurt or invaded. When we dance on the 14th, the whole idea is that we break out of this cage of patriarchy, of fear, of intimidation, and we blast out of the boundaries that have kept our selves, kept our creativity, kept our vision, kept our body in prison and we discover this new energy that is going to fuel the planet”.
