HIV/AIDS is no longer striking primarily men. Today, more than 20 years into the epidemic, women account for nearly half of the 40 million people living with HIV worldwide. The call to empower women has never been more urgent. We must act now to strengthen their capacity, resilience and leadership. This book is an urgent call to action to address the triple threat of gender inequality, poverty and HIV/AIDS. HIV/AIDS and You is written expressly for people with HIV/AIDS and their caregivers, friends ad family members, and will be invaluable to physicians who must struggle with the overwhelming demands of this rapidly changing field.
