Description - Gendered Epidemic by Nancy L. Roth
A collection of essays that question the "add women and stir" model that governs most HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment efforts. The individual essays in this text describe conflicts and contradictions, and pose theories and practices. Written by HIV positive women, theorists, teachers, artists, policy makers and activists, it offers insights necessary to stem the spread of HIV. Activists have long signalled the inadequacy of prevention strategies and drug protocols that have been developed from research done primarily on men. The latest C.D.C. figures prove they were right; for the first time since the beginning of the epidemic, AIDS cases among white men have fallen, yet the largest increases are among women.
