For World AIDS Day 2022, AWDF will support work under the theme of “Employing technology to reduce HIV-related stigma and new infections among young women”.
To contribute to the creation of safe, accessible digital spaces, AWDF invites applications from women-led organizations and women’s groups for work using digital technologies such as mobile phones, social media, and online apps to address stigma and discrimination against women living with HIV and to facilitate access to treatment and services.
