HIV and AIDS have the potential to undermine the massive improvements that have been made in global health over the years. AIDS epidemic is now witnessing feminization of epidemic .Women are most susceptible to the negative impacts- direct or indirect, i.e. infected or affected, of HIV and AIDS. Women has been regarded as “breeder, feeder and producer” and now in context of HIV/AIDS perhaps a transmitter of virus as well. Women''s risk of contracting HIV is interlinked with lack of access to information, services and commodities. Focusing on women''s vulnerability is the key to fight the epidemic of HIV. Women have poor access to information and education, which is critical in the context of HIV. Further, stigma also affects women more intensely than men, preventing them from accessing treatment, information and prevention services . So with this aim ,the present book was written to lay the foundation for further research on larger scale to address affective and contextual issues in HIV spread and prevention including family health and cultural aspects of gender and power in efforts to halt the spread of HIV infection.Über den Autor:
