About this Item: B.R. Publishing Corporation, Delhi/ The Women Press, 2008. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. HIV and AIDS : Vulnerability of Women in Asia and Africa is a valuable advocacy tool for addressing the complex challenge of drawing attention to empower women to protect themselves and their families from the epidemic. This book focuses on the vulnerability of women in Asia and Africa to HIV/AIDS from various forces such as the wider social, cultural, economic and political factors. It takes a hard look at the risks of HIV/AIDS that affect women directly or indirectly through poverty, lack of education and livelihood opportunities, inhuman traditions, low social status, poor health care and lack of control over sexual relationships. The studies presented here on sexual behaviour, knowledge of AIDS, attitudes and behaviour change communication point to actions that can be strengthened and stepped up to arrest the spread of the epidemic. The findings documented in this book have important implications for prevention, treatment and care of women infected by HIV/AIDS. They also provide insight into factors related to sexual behaviour across gender, age groups and populations. The book will also provoke fresh debates on educational and communication strategies addressing the vulnerability of women on HIV/AIDS. This book will be a key reference for a diverse group ranging across researchers, health experts, policy makers, voluntary organizations, social and community workers, donor agencies, media professionals and students, facing the daunting task of empowering women on an urgent basis and focussing effective HIV/AIDS prevention strategies which will determine the future course of the AIDS epidemic in Asia and Africa.
