Notes: 
Review, Network Fall 2005: The Inaugural International Institute on Gender and HIV/AIDS (IIGHA) was held 7-11 June 2004 at the Kopanong Conference Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. Eighty-eight participants, including senior government decision makers, researchers, programme managers and practitioners, activists and advocates from Botswana, Canada, Lesotho, South Africa and Swaziland, gathered together with representatives from regional and international organizations. They met to share their experiences and expertise on the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and to build partnerships and capacity to address the role of gender in HIV prevention, treatment, care, support and impact mitigation, share expertise and experience, and enable mutual learning based on good practices and lessons learned. The goal of the Institute is to strengthen the connections between practice, policy and research in order to enhance or extend existing efforts to tackle issues of gender and HIV/AIDS through the creation of a global network of expertise on gender-based analysis and planning in HIV/AIDS. This document not only provides us with a comprehensive report of the conference, but also introduces and presents the rich history of the Institute.

Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, June/July 2005: This book is about gender, health and medicine broadly defined. As seen throughout the text, medicine and health are social constructions, and gender is an embedded part of them. The different authors reveal that embedded with gender in the institution of medicine are race, class, and sexuality. Taken as a whole, the volume offers a critique of exclusively biomedical approaches to personal and public health and calls for more sociological input and qualitative research to help understand aspects of health and illness. Recurring themes include the medicalization of personal and social problems, the commodification of healthcare, and questions of agency, responsibility and control. It contains such timely topics as somatic distress among women with breast cancer, drug company funding of research on women's sexual problems, and racial and ethnic health disparities.
