Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0231106041, Hardcover)

HIV/AIDS affects women worldwide. Yet intervention programmes often fail to take into account the different cultures and behaviours that make women more vulnerable than men. Although policy debates increasingly include women and gender considerations, funds and resources for women, especially those already suffering with HIV/AIDS, remain inadequate. "Women's Experiences with HIV/AIDS" recounts the experiences of individual women whose daily struggles and concerns are ignored in the larger dialogues about HIV/AIDS. Women and men from diverse backgrounds discuss the differences between women within and across cultures and how particular traditions and attitudes can determine a woman's vulnerability to HIV/AIDS. This collection provides a much-needed examination of the interventions and policies that do not yet fully address the needs and limitations of women suffering with infection, or confronted by that possibility.
