Brings together information about the HIV virus and AIDS and how they affect women across the world. Contrary to popular myth, AIDS has been killing women since it was first identified, and has now become the biggest killer of women between the ages of 18 and 35 in many parts of the world, from Zimbabwe to New York. This book brings together the knowledge and expertise of women who have been working in HIV/AIDS and in reproductive rights worldwide. Culled from a wide range of published and unpublished sources, and including enlightening and accessible resource, this book should be of interest to practitioners, lobbyists, journalists and educators.
