Leading the Feminist Response to HIV Since 1992


About ICW

Established in 1992, ICW is the only global network for and by women living with HIV advocating for our rights. 

ICW envisions a world where all women living with HIV live free of gender oppression, realizing and claiming our full rights inclusive of sexual, reproductive, legal, social, economic and health rights.

ICW exists to lead efforts to secure and improve the quality of life for women living with HIV.  We do this by mobilizing, organizing, advocating, mentoring and raising consciousness on the issues and policies that directly impact our lives.

All self-identified women living with HIV are encouraged to join ICW as members.
