ISBN 0801487536
Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, Network Spring/Summer 2002: Self-sacrificing mothers and forgiving wives, caretaking lesbians, and vigilant maternal surrogates – these "good women" are all familiar figures in the visual and print culture relating to AIDS. The author describes how texts on AIDS reproduce this historically entrenched paradigm of sacrifice and care that reinforces biases about race and sexuality. While caretaking is a fundamental human obligation, the book demonstrates how it currently falls primarily to those members of society with the least power.

Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, Network Winter 2003: By the end of 2001, 40 million people were living with HIV and 3 million people had died from HIV/AIDS-related causes in that year alone. While AIDS was originally diagnosed in homosexual men, there has been a progressive shift towards heterosexual transmission. Infection rates in women, especially young women, have now increased to the point that almost as many women as men are now dying of HIV/AIDS. In order to address this pandemic, a gender perspective has to be mainstreamed into a broad-based and multisectoral response to the disease. This manual uses case studies from developing and developed countries to illustrate the success of HIV-prevention programs that consider gender, as well as the social and economic factors that increase people’s risk of infection.
