This article in the June 1999 issue of Relief and Rehabilitation Network's Newsletter reflects on the linkages between war and forced migration to the spread of HIV/AIDS, and its particularly acute impact on women and children, as they make up the largest proportion of refugee and displace people. The article provides analysis of the gender dimensions of HIV/AIDS in emergency situations and provides recommendations for strategies that can be implemented by agencies in response.
