Our resources section is where we make available useful resources such as studies, reports from the United Nations, Civil Society, NGOs, Governments, Academic Institutions and other sources related to women and specially women in Africa and other important documents such as copies of the Maputo Protocol and UNSCR 1325.
We have been able to gather together important and useful information while at the same time fostering information sharing among other organizations working for women’s rights.
It ranges from Women, Peace and Security; Political Participation; Economic Empowerment, Violence Against Women to HIV/AIDS & Reproductive and so on.
This guide is developed by Rutgers WPF and STOP AIDS NOW! and is part of the Quality of SRHR and HIV prevention programme. In this programme we aim to support civil society organisations (CSO’s) working on HIV prevention interventions and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) education for young people in 12 African countries.
