Insights to Action – Navigating the Intersection between Gender and Adolescent Mental Health

Organized by International Center for Research on Women (ICRW)

September 13
12:00 PM – 1:30 PM
ICRW, 1120 20th St NW, Suite 500N,
Washington, DC


Girls are at increased risk due to unequal access to resources, decision-making power and education; gender-based violence; and discriminatory practices like child marriage. Few programs and policies have effectively addressed the mental health and well-being needs of adolescents, especially in low- and middle-income countries. Further, existing programs and policies rarely take gender into account or reach the most marginalized.

Join ICRW to discuss the intersection between gender and adolescent mental health.


HIV and Adolescents: A World AIDS Day Conversation

Organized by World Vision Global Health Community of Practice 

HIV and Adolescents: A World AIDS Day Conversation

December 1, 2016
8:00 am EST


You are invited to World Vision’s December Global Health, Nutrition and HIV Community of Practice World AIDS Day Webinar on HIV and Adolescents.

AIDS is now the leading cause of death among adolescents in Africa. A majority of adolescent girls lack knowledge of how to protect themselves from HIV and also lack access to critical health services including ART. In addition, nearly half of youth and adults infected with HIV globally are associated with key populations who experience substantial rights violations and barriers to accessing services. In this World AIDS Day Webinar, we have invited three special guests and HIV and AIDS experts to our Community table.


– Dr. Susan Kasedde, UNICEF Senior Specialist and Team Leader for HIV will be speaking on the prevalence rates of HIV in adolescents, the drivers and the barriers for adolescents to access prevention and treatment services.
– Rev. Phumzile Mabizela, Executive Director of the International Network of Religious Leaders Living with or personally affected by HIV and AIDS (INERELA+) will be speaking on our role as a faith community in ensuring adolescents are empowered to protect themselves from HIV and are accessing prevention and treatment services.
– Dr. Adugna Kebede, World Vision International Techincal Director for HIV and TB, will be launching World Vision’s updated manual for Channels of Hope for HIV.
