To promote understanding, knowledge sharing, and action on HIV/AIDS as a gender equality and human rights issue, the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM),with support from the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), has developed a Gender and HIV/AIDS Electronic Library to provide up-to-date information on the gender dimensions of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

The Electronic Library, contained in a CD-ROM format, is based on UNIFEM's Gender and HIV/AIDS Web Portal www.genderandaids.org and compiles resources produced by a variety of organizations working on HIV/AIDS, including cutting-edge research and studies, training resources and tools, and multimedia advocacy materials.

All information can be easily searched and retrieved using a variety of criteria. The Library is intended to be a useful resource for academics,policymakers, practitioners, journalists, students and others interested in the gender dimensions of the epidemic.

In addition, resources are complemented by a unique feature called the "e-Course Builder" that allows users to create and edit a tailored electronic course or report in HTML format, drawing from the materials contained in the CD-ROM.

Topic areas included in the CD-ROM are:

* Gender Mainstreaming and HIV/AIDS

* Gender, Sexuality and Power Relations

* Gender, Human Rights and HIV/AIDS

* Prevention, Treatment and Care

* Legislation and Policy

* Adolescents and Youth

* Gender, HIVAIDS, and Conflict

* Stigma and Discrimination

* Violence Against Women and HIV/AIDS

* The Care Economy and Women's Unpaid Work

* HIV/AIDS in the Workplace

* Men and Masculinities

* People Living with HIV/AIDS

The Gender and HIV/AIDS Electronic Library will be updated in future versions.
