Indonesia face prevailing challenges of the HIV epidemic particularly in relation to persistent gender inequalities that have caused higher risks of infections among women and girls. Of the 620 000 adults living with HIV, 220 000 (35.48%) were women. New HIV infections among young women aged 15–24 years were more than half of those among young men: 9600 new infections among young women, compared to 14 000 among young men (UNAIDS, 2018)
The above situation implies the needs for gender mainstreaming into HIV responses in Indonesia using the existing opportunities where Indonesia is shaping future direction of HIV programming and budgeting through the next phase of Global Fund funding mechanism (GF NFM) 2018-2020. Indonesia is also among the 30 fast track countries that are committed to achieve 90-90-90 global by 2020, promoting gender equality is central to the achievement of these targets.
UN Women became one of UNAIDS’ co-sponsors under UNAIDS Unified Budget, Accountability and Result Framework (UBRAF). The UBRAF is an instrument to translate the UNAIDS Strategy into action, mobilizing the contributions of UNAIDS Cosponsors and Secretariat to support the achievement of the Targets of the Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS (2011). Under this mechanism, UN Women in Indonesia is supporting number of initiatives to integrate gender equality and human rights principles into national HIV/AIDS response. The program will engage key government institutions, UN agencies, and most at risk population specially focusing on girls & women including Women Living with HIV (WLHIV).
In 2019, UN WOMEN supported Standard of Procedure on handling Intimate Partner Violence part of Intimate Partner Notification has developed and planned to be implemented in 2020 onwards in collaboration with UNFPA and Ministry of Health. The effort was to emphasize the interlinkage between Violence against Women (VAW) and HIV intervention to reduce layers of vulnerability of women living with HIV and or women who have been impacted by HIV.
UN Women continue its focus on mainstreaming gender into national HIV policies and program, and addressing the intersectionality of gender-based violence, and other gender related barriers to women’s vulnerabilities of HIV. In view of this, UN Women intends to hire a qualified individual national consultant to implement the HIV project activities in accordance to the UN Women’s Indonesia SN 2019-2020 and AWP 2020.
