Examines four scenarios commonly encountered by health care workers who work with injection drug users to investigate potential difficulties and solutions. Concludes by making several recommendations including tolerating drug use on health sites, providing prisoners with sterile injection equipment, and providing injection equipment to minors. All recommendations and solutions are made assuming that users should be treated with respect, dignity, and as autonomous beings.

Addresses women and AIDS from a communication perspective. In the absence of a cure or vaccine, communication is central to efforts to stem the spread of the HIV virus and to care for those who are already infected. Media representations play a large role in popular perceptions of the disease and those infected and affected by it. The ways that HIV, those infected with HIV and those affected by the virus are constructed affect transmission/prevention, caregiver-patient relationships, and medical outcomes. The essays in this collection explore women's negotiation of safer sex and intravenous drug use practices; women's negotiation of the health care system as patients, medical research subjects, and caregivers; and women's negotiation of HIV-related media representations as producers, consumers and objects of representation. Also asks important and painful questions about gender, race, and class issues that are exacerbated by the epidemic; and provides guidance for communicating through and around these obstacles, and methods of discursively reducing them.
