The supplement issue focuses on finding ways to work across disciplines with the goal of ensuring that women living with HIV are at the centre of decision-making about their sexual and reproductive health and rights. With the advent of antiretroviral therapy and with continued channeling of resources into HIV services, greater numbers of HIV-positive women are living longer, healthier lives. As a result, they are contending with a range of issues affecting their sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Papers published in the issue highlight a need for stronger evidence-based research; drawing from biomedical, economic, political, legal and social sciences alike. It also recognizes the importance of moving beyond the disciplinary silos to bring perspectives together in order to provide more comprehensive information relevant to the lives of these women. Together these papers are intended to inform and help drive policy, program building, research and advocacy efforts to promote and protect the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women living with HIV.
