Accessing housing in the Western Cape: A guide for women vulnerable to gender-based violence and HIV/AIDS, and for organisations providing services to them

The guide is part of a joint project between the Community Law Centre (Socio-Economic Rights Project and Gender Project) and the Saartjie Baartman Centre for Women and Children on reducing women and girls' vulnerability to HIV/AIDS by ensuring their property and inheritance rights. This joint project aims, especially, to improve women's access to adequate housing to make them less vulnerable to gender-based violence (GBV) and HIV/AIDS. The project is supported by the International Centre for Research on Women, through financial support from UNAIDS. Written in plain language and user-friendly format, the guide aims to inform and educate its readers on the different housing allocation policies in the Western Cape Province. As the title indicates, it is targeted at women vulnerable to gender-based violence and HIV/AIDS as well as organisations providing services to them, and contains topic-specific examples illustrating the basic principles.
