Profile of Nazneen Damji: 1994/95

Nazneen Damji writes in June 2001: I am working with UNIFEM (UN Development Fund for Women) on their global Gender and HIV/AIDS programme. I used to be with the Economic Empowerment section, then the Asia-Pacific regional section, and am now with gender and HIV/AIDS. We are also working on the issue of gender and HIV/AIDS within the context of conflict.
