Today, JASS honors the Mesoamerican Women Human Rights Defenders Initiative, a political alliance that strengthens and mobilizes women human rights defenders in the volatile and increasingly violent contexts of Mesoamerica.
As JASS in Mesoamerica, Southern Africa, and Southeast Asia, we express our collective concern about the growing violence, violations of basic political and civil rights, and deterioration of democratic institutions in Honduras in the context of the very contested elections.

This case study was presented at the Scaling Accountability: Integrated Approaches to Civil Society Monitoring and Advocacy workshop organised by the Transparency and Accountability Initiative, School of International Service at American University, the International Budget Partnership and Government Watch of Ateneo School of Government, held 18-20 June 2015, in Washington, D.C. It discusses JASS’ work in Malawi, which began in 2007 as an effort to facilitate and support the greater participation of women living with HIV / AIDS (WLHIV) in all matters affecting their lives.
