Thohoyandou Victim Empowerment Program received an invitation to participate in a 3-day WHO/UNIFA (World Health Organization/ United Nations Population Fund/ collaborating with family Health International) conference at the UN Headquarters in Bangkok. Thailand. This was an invitation only workshop focusing on universal access to female condoms. The issue is quite significant considering an estimated 650 South African women die each day from preventable AIDS. The meeting was a vital human rights step for all South African women and for the recognition of TVEP on an international level. Through donor support HFL was able to send a knowledgeable TVEP staff person who provided crucial input on this topic and its relevance to TVEP's work in Limpopo Province.
