HIV and AIDS have the potential to undermine the massive improvements that have been made in global health over the years. AIDS epidemic is now witnessing feminization of epidemic .Women are most susceptible to the negative impacts- direct or indirect, i.e. infected or affected, of HIV and AIDS. Women has been regarded as breeder, feeder and producer and now in context of HIV/AIDS perhaps a transmitter of virus as well. Women''s risk of contracting HIV is interlinked with lack of access to information, services and commodities. Focusing on women''s vulnerability is the key to fight the epidemic of HIV. Women have poor access to information and education, which is critical in the context of HIV. Further, stigma also affects women more intensely than men, preventing them from accessing treatment, information and prevention services . So with this aim ,the present book was written to lay the foundation for further research on larger scale to address affective and contextual issues in HIV spread and prevention including family health and cultural aspects of gender and power in efforts to halt the spread of HIV infection.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Health Science, grade: 1.00, University of Vienna (Institut der Kultur- und Sozialanthropologie an der Universität Wien), language: English, abstract: Around the world, in the last decades since the appearing of HIV/AIDS, the prevalence of women infected by HIV is raising faster than the prevalence of men. Although this development had been recognized soon, it was not posible to stop it. On the basis of these facts, I will have a closer look at the situation of women in Latin America concerning the disease and I want to review the 'feminization' of HIV/AIDS. Furthermore, I will give an overview of two Gender constructing concepts of Latin America, Machismo and Marianismo, which I seek to challenge in its impacts on (the development of) programs and organsisations concerning the epidemic, and following, in women.

The concept of security has often narrowly focused on issues surrounding the protection of national borders from outside threats. However, a richer idea of human security has become increasingly important in the past decade or so. The aim is to incorporate various dimensions of the downside risks affecting the generalized well-being or dignity of people. Despite this rising prominence, the discourses surrounding human security have neglected to address the topic of gender, particularly how issues of poverty and underdevelopment impact women’s and men’s experiences and strategies differently. Since its introduction in the 1994 UNDP Human Development report, the idea of human security has become increasingly influential among academics and international development practitioners. However, gendered dimensions of human security have not attracted enough attention, despite their vital importance. Women are disproportionately more vulnerable to disease and other forms of human insecurity due to differences in entitlement, empowerment and an array of other ecological and socio-economic factors. These gendered insecurities are inextricably linked to poverty, and as a result, the feminization of poverty is a growing phenomenon worldwide. The contributors to this volume rely on a gender-focused analysis to consider a number of issues central to human security and development in Africa, including food security, environmental health risks, discrimination within judicial and legal systems, gendered aspects of HIV/AIDS transmission and treatment technologies, neoliberalism and poverty alleviation strategies, and conflict and women’s political activism. The gender focus of this volume points to the importance of power relationships and policy variability underlying human insecurities in the African context. The insights of this book offer the potential for an improved human security framework, one that embraces a more complex and context-specific analysis of the issues of risk and vulnerability, therefore expanding the capacities of the human security framework to safeguard the livelihoods of the most vulnerable populations.
