Leading the Feminist Response to HIV Since 1992



"Through our campaign #GenderMatters we want to highlight how gender inequality and patriarchy underscores our health outcomes and intensifies the diverse issues women living with HIV experience in relation to our other intersecting identities."

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. 





Impact Towards Change

We want to impact the world by ensuring that women living with HIV live free of gender oppression, enjoy our human rights and better health, inclusion and social wellbeing.

Feminist Movement Building

Building Feminist Futures

Our feminist movement build program works with women to build their consciousness, and awareness of systematic gender oppression though workshops, campaigns, and resources. 

Knowledge Creation

Documenting Our Experience

We believe that women living with HIV are the experts in their own experience and therefore it is essential for them to lead, share and generate the creation of knowledge including research.
