|Gendering AIDS: Women, Men, Mobilisation, Empowerment|
AUTHOR: M. Lewis
VSO's new campaign, AIDS Agenda, focuses attention on the need for more equality between women and men as part of an effective response to HIV and AIDS. This publication marks the beginning of the new campaign. Research for Gendering AIDS was carried out in South Africa, India, Namibia and Cambodia, and reflects the priorities of the organizations VSO works with in those countries. In particular it examines how national and international policies designed to protect women's rights can be put into practice, and how men can be more constructively involved in HIV and AIDS work at the grassroots.
