Demonstrates that a medical approach is not sufficient to implement effective infectious disease prevention strategies in women. Argues that health policies must be changed, and social restrictions that circumscribe women need to be eliminated. Presents three steps necessary for developing a prevention strategy: 1) a gender perspective must be incorporated into infectious disease analysis and research to target policies and programs. Data collected must be disaggregated by sex, age, socioeconomic status, education, ethnicity, and geographic location; 2) models must be developed and implemented that address gender inequities in infectious diseases in an integrated manner; and 3) outreach activities must be supported, using information, education, and communication strategies and materials for advocacy and training.
