Technical Brief: Fulfilling the sexual and reproductive rights of women living with HIV, preventing coerced and forced sterilization

The purpose of this technical brief is to promote gender-transformative, rights-based and scientifically accurate information for advocacy and service-delivery to fulfil the sexual and reproductive rights of women, girls and people who have the capacity to become pregnant, who are living with HIV.  In doing so, we also aim to provide sufficient evidence to prevent sexual and reproductive rights violations, especially coerced and/or forced sterilization against those living with HIV. The technical brief documents that coerced and/or forced sterilization of women living with HIV is a persistent and serious human rights violation requiring urgent action. The brief reviews components of comprehensive sexual and reproductive health (SRH) service delivery and international medical guidance to uphold and fulfil the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV to choose if and when to have children.  This brief is primarily intended to inform IPPF Member Associations, secretariat staff, and partners including other SRH service delivery organizations and stakeholders. The brief reinforces IPPF’s position and commitment to person-centred and rights-based HIV care that is integrated within a comprehensive package of SRH services.

Despite comprising fewer MAs, IPPF recovered more than half the decrease caused the previous year by clinic closures and other restrictions. Couple years of protection (CYP) increased by eight percent to reach 29 million – higher than in any year prior to the pandemic.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

In September 2021, members of the Child, Early & Forced Marriage and Unions (CEFMU) and Sexuality Working Group published a letter to the editor in the Journal of Adolescent Health. The letter calls for: 1) an approach to defining and measuring success in CEFMU interventions that goes beyond age of marriage as a standalone indicator. 2) greater support for gender-transformative interventions that foster girls’ agency and shift norms related to gender and sexuality. 3) increased investment in research and evaluation to better capture sustainable change in these areas. On February 2, 2022, the Working Group convened a webinar to discuss these issues. Panelists included members of the Working Group, as well a funder, researchers, advocates and program implementers from around the world who work with and for adolescent girls. They shared their perspectives on 1) why age of marriage as standalone vision and measure of success is limiting and potentially harmful. 2) what alternative programming approaches and measurements can better lead to and capture progress in transforming the root causes of CEFMU. 3) what the field needs—from funders and from researchers—to advance work for adolescent girls that leads to their greater freedom and life opportunities.
