The IGWG organizes regular in-person and virtual events where members from around the world can learn from and connect with each other. These events may be thematic, such as a focus on recent research in the GBV field, or dedicated to capacity strengthening, such as integrating participatory and inclusive evaluation and learning methods in gender transformative global health programming. Our annual IGWG Plenary creates space for members to meet in person and provide feedback on the network as a whole each year.

Presentations and recordings of IGWG events are available online so you can find past events you missed or want to revisit. The presentation materials are also available.

The influence of gender dynamics on HIV risk behaviors is well established. However, less is known about the relationship between gender-related factors (e.g., gender norms, partner violence) and engagement in the HIV care continuum. A clearer understanding of the gender-related barriers to the use of HIV services by both women and men is critical for informing effective policies and programs that accelerate progress for achieving UNAIDS 90-90-90 goals.


In this webinar, the presenters will discuss recent evidence examining the role of gender dynamics in HIV prevention and care practices and service uptake. The findings come from a SOAR implementation science study as well as a review of the global literature on gender-based violence (GBV) and women’s use of HIV services.


What is the influence of gender norms on HIV prevention and care continuum outcomes among women and men in South Africa?
We will present data recently collected from a representative sample of residents in rural communities in Mpumalanga, and their implications for HIV treatment and control programs.


What are the relationships between women’s experience of GBV and their use of services along the HIV care continuum?
We will discuss findings from a review of the literature on GBV as a barrier to the use of HIV services among different sub-populations of women, as well as promising service delivery models that provide integrated GBV and HIV services.
