Women's groups

Women's advocacy groups are usually very active in most developing countries. Such groups include professional women's groups (e.g. accountants, nurses, lawyers, doctors), political and religious associations, trade groups and national federations. You also need to look out for support groups formed by women living with HIV/AIDS or mothers of people living with HIV/AIDS. Target the leadership of such groups and include key members on your Contact List.
