EVIDENCE SESSION ON MATERNAL HEALTH
Wednesday 5 December 2007, 09.15am
Thatcher Room, Portcullis House
To mark World AIDS Day, the International Development Committee will be investigating the relationship between HIV/AIDS and Maternal Health in an evidence session to be held on 5 December 2007.
The complex intersections between HIV, women's health, gender inequality and violence demand integrated responses to these issues from governments and donors. This session will explore possible strategies for integrated responses and ask how successful the UK's Department for International Development (DFID), the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria and other international institutions have been in building such linkages.
