Women now account for one third of the ten million people with HIV infection worldwide and on World AIDS Day in December 1990 the World Health Organisation estimated that "three million women are currently HIV infected and are expected to die by the year 2000". Yet women have found that the information available often did not apply to them, that most services were geared towards men, and that doctors and other professional were often unprepared for the particular issues that women raise. Working with Women with AIDS fills this important gap by addressing a number of questions of relevance to those working with women affected; Are women more likely to be infected heterosexually than men?; What are the implications of childbearing?; What have been the effects of women working in the sex industry?; and do women with HIV infection have different emotional need from men? This book also bings to the forefront medical and social issues for women, highlights the knowledge and experience of medical experts, and of pofessionals involved in the support and advocacy for women with HIV, and the important aspect of education and counselling. Working with Women and AIDS will be invaluable to a wide range of health care professionals including counsellors, social workers, doctors and nurses, and to all those working with women affected by HIV and AIDS. It will also be of great interest to lecturers and students in of social policy and social work.
