The global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) express ambitious commitments to achieve gender equality, empower women and girls and ensure they lead healthy lives. These SDGs can be powerful tools to push for accountability and action and to create space for a stronger and more diverse female leadership. Global efforts to end AIDS by 2030, eliminate gender-based discrimination and violence, protect reproductive rights, and achieve universal health coverage, among others, could lead to transformative change that reduces HIV risk and ensures women and girls living with HIV can lead normal lives.  This workshop shares strategies for holding governments accountable for implementing the SDGs. Through interactive discussions and exercises, participants will learn about accountability tools and develop skills to influence health and development decision-making processes, including national health planning processes, Global Fund country dialogues, and country coordinating mechanisms.
