The orange represents gender-based violence (GBV) and red represents HIV/AIDS.
Approximately 4.7 million women—or 30% of all women aged 15 and older—have been a victim of sexual assault outside of the context of intimate relationships (Statistics Canada, 2019).
There were also approximately 37.7 million people across the globe with HIV in 2020. Of these, 36 million were adults and 1.7 million were children aged 0-14 years. More than half (53%) of people living with HIV/AIDS are women and girls (Global Statistics, 2021). These staggering numbers are concerning, and demonstrate the need for a gender-based approach to HIV/AIDS prevention.
