In 2008, the African Union Commission commissioned the first desk review on “Women and Girls, HIV/AIDS and Conflicts: Situation Analysis of 11 Selected Conflict and Post-Conflict Countries in Africa”. This second review assesses the progress made in the implementation of the recommendations of the first Desk Review.
The 11 countries that were included in the First Desk Review were Angola, Burundi, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Liberia, Mozambique, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan and Uganda. With the South Sudan becoming the newest nation on the continent this Second Desk Review includes it in the analysis using the available data. The 12 countries have for the most part been peaceful over the past five years.
