Session: Sociocultural Dimensions of HIV Prevention and Care
4043.0: Tuesday, November 07, 2006: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Sociocultural Dimensions of HIV Prevention and Care
HIV/AIDS is a particularly complex disease because of the socio-cultural dimensions that surround prevention, care and treatment. In this session we look at some of the specific issues that relate to care. We begin with the sexual nad reproductive health needs of women and girls, and go on to issues of stigma and commercial sex. We conclude with a presentation on programming for youth in Africa from the African Youth Alliance Model.
