In Rwanda, women and girls are disproportionately infected with HIV, comprising approximately 59% of all infections. For this study, MEASURE Evaluation conducted a gender-based analysis in Rwanda, using HIV-related routine and non-routine data. Sex-disaggregated variables from routine sources examined the difference, or the gender gap, between the number or proportion of men/boys and women/girls using services and reached by programs. Data from special surveys conducted during the past five years were used to explore structural factors related to gender and HIV. Working with a multisectoral national-level collaborative team in Rwanda, the activity was designed to enable program managers at the national level to understand how to use their data for a gender-sensitive and effective HIV response.
