While AIDS was originally diagnosed in homosexual men, there has been a progressive shift towards heterosexual transmission. Infection rates in women, especially young women, have now increased to the point that almost as many women as men are now dying of HIV/AIDS. In order to address this pandemic, a gender perspective has to be mainstreamed into a broad-based and multisectoral response to the disease. This manual uses case studies from developing and developed countries to illustrate the success of HIV-prevention programs that consider gender, as well as the social and economic factors that increase people’s risk of infection.
