Men, Women and the AIDS Epidemic

image of From Tragedy Towards Hope

This book tells the real life stories of men and women who live with the HIV/AIDS virus and have triumphed over it. It describes the impact of the virus on people and communities, and the initiatives taken by UNAIDS and the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). It delves into the myths and rituals that surround women, sex and sexuality, and helps readers understand the human consequences of the epidemic for those affected, their families, communities and society at large.



‘I Know I am a Woman of Worth'

I am reminded of Robert Benigni's portrayal in his Oscar winning film Life is Beautiful Tough, disturbing circumstances in a concentration camp and yet life could be beautiful. That, of course, was on celluloid. The focus moves to Mexico - real life, real women and a real life threat - a virus called AIDS.
