Gender and HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa: The Cases of Uganda and Malawi

Published on 1 January 1993

This report discusses the gender dimensions of the impact of HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa, with a particular focus on Uganda and some reference to Malawi. The primary focus is the heterosexual transmission of HIV and its prevention, raising issues of gender and sexuality, on which there is a large literature.

The report concludes with recommendations on sensitising prevention and care programmes to gender considerations. An appendix listing HIV/AIDS-related work of international and national organisations in Uganda and Malawi is attached.
