14 Why is integrating gender into HIV programs important? Understanding the unique needs of men and women, boys and girls, and other gender identitiesTo identify target populations and dedicate resources where they are most needed.To identify gender-related barriers, such as norms etcResponding to the unique needs of men and boys, women and girls, and other gender identitiesTo improve program outcomes and enhance sustainability
15 What Does It Mean To Integrate Gender into HIV prevention, Care & Treatment?
