The Italian Association for Women in Development (AIDOS) is a non governmental, non profit organization, established in Rome in 1981 by a group of women development professionals and activists with the intent of carrying out the goals of the UN Decade for women: equality, development and peace. Its comprehensive goal is to support the concept and the methodology of women's empowerment by reinforcing women's organizations and NGOs in developing countries, enabling them to respond to women's needs and to manage their interventions autonomously. Since its creation AIDOS has concentrated its project work in four areas of intervention, where the contribution of Italian women is particularly relevant: a) women's reproductive health and rights through the creation of health counselling centers for women that follow a holistic, integrated approach and support to projects aiming at the eradication of FGM in Africa; b) creation of micro and small enterprises run by women and support to existing enterprises through the establishment of business service centers that provide technical and organizational support; c) capacity building of women's institutions and organizations, mainly through the creation of documentation, information and communication resource centers; and d) the education of girls.
