INTERSECT MISSION STATEMENT

“Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”


- Goethe

INTERSECT MISSION STATEMENT : INTERSECT employs a new concept and organizing principle to create powerful, multi-disciplinary Intersect Coalitions for social mobilization across countries worldwide to end the co-epidemics of HIV and Violence Against Women and Girls.

INTERSECT COALITIONS :

1)

Engage in cooperative action to advance common goals and face issues of common concern among those working in HIV/AIDS, Violence Against Women and Girls, and related fields.

2)

Use the vast networks of established organizations within the women’s movement to raise awareness of HIV and bring their full weight to the struggle to end the scourges of HIV/AIDS and violence.

3)

Promote innovative approaches to education, law, and public policy.

4)  

Marshal a formidable, visible force to create significant change in the social environment in which HIV and Violence Against Women and Girls currently thrives so that social justice, gender parity and a life of quality and safety replace the current spectres of violence and HIV.

5)   Representing a wide array of constituents, from urban, to deep rural to traditional communities, Intersect Coalitions work on a scale never before attempted to fight these devastating and deadly co-epidemics.
