The issues of violence, commercial sex-work and sex tourism,human trafficking, population displacement and crisis will also be addressed in relation to women and men’s susceptibilities to HIVAIDS. The discussion will be situated within the framework of the commitments made at the 2001 UNGASS, and their critical implications for the national, regional and international response to the epidemic.
