WHO Consolidated Guideline Executive summary

Link to the webinar on the consolidated guidelines 

The World Health Organization consolidated guideline on the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of women living with HIV is grounded in and advocates for a strengthened, comprehensive, woman-centred approach to SRHR. The guideline outlines evidence-based recommendations and good practice statements for key operational and service delivery issues that need to be addressed in order to uphold human rights and promote gender equality. Unique to the development of this guideline, a global community survey was conducted on the SRHR priorities of women living with HIV. It highlighted high levels of violence experienced by women living with HIV before and after diagnosis from partners, community and in health settings.

In Canada, women living with HIV also report experiencing high rates of violence and trauma. Women who have experienced trauma are at risk of being re-traumatized within health and community services, which may lead to ineffective and unsafe care. In response to the need for better guidance on how to ensure the safety of women living with HIV within service and care provision, this webinar highlight current strategies, challenges, and opportunities to implement trauma aware care interventions for women and girls living with HIV. The webinar brings together perspectives from women living with HIV, front-line community workers, researchers, clinicians, and policy makers who will share key considerations and highlight research and service gaps from the African, Caribbean, Black community, the Indigenous community, and the importance of integrating MIWA principles when designing care and recognizing women’s resilience.

Webinar Objectives:

The overall goal of the webinar series is to support implementation of the WHO guidelines on the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV. Specific objectives include to:

  • Provide an overview of current research about trauma and violence aware care in Canada context using data from the Canadian HIV Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health Cohort Study (CHIWOS)
  • Gain feedback on best practices from national stakeholders regarding the implementation of health care services to support women living with HIV experiencing trauma and violence
  • Gain insights from women living with HIV to highlight gaps in research and priority areas for further attention
  • Develop an action plan on trauma and violence aware care for the Canadian context
