Instituto de la Mujer, located at Condesa de Venadito, 34, is an organ attached to but independent of the  Ministerio de Igualdad.  It was founded on 24 October 1983. The Instituto de la Mujer prepared a report for the first time on women with HIV / AIDS in 1992.  Instituto de la Mujer had been founded on 24 October 1983 and attached to the Ministerio de Igualdad to promote equality between the sexes, and to encourage the participation of women in political, cultural, economic and social life.  At the time the document was released, the institute was between plans with the first plan having been focused on six areas, one of which was women’s health, and a second of which was family and social protection. The document then takes a heterocentric perspective to advice regarding the prevention of transmission. Lesbians and women who had sex with other women were not mentioned.

The Instituto de la Mujer prepared a second edition in 2007 of their women with HIV / AIDS report.  The only time lesbians were mentioned were in the name of a national organization to contact that supports women with HIV / AIDS.  Bisexual women were not mentioned at all.  The report said that most cases of HIV / AIDS in Spain impacted men, that heterosexual transmission accounted for 60.3% of all cases in 2006.  The Instituto de la Mujer estimated that there were 120,000 to 150,000 people who had HIV / AIDS in Spain, with 20 to 25% being women.  Of the women a quarter did not know how they were infected.  The document then takes a heterocentric perspective to advice regarding the prevention of transmission.

On 13 January 2020, Beatriz Gimeno Reinoso replaced Rocío Rodríguez Prieto as the director of the Instituto de la Mujer. She resigned from the position in March 20201 to run on the Podemos list for the March 2021 regional elections, where she again won a post as a deputy.
