Abstract

" This report provides an overview of the gender implications of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South East Asia and the South Pacific, and a review of HIV/AIDS prevention and control strategies in these regions, with particular reference to gender issues in their design and implementation. The issues involved are complex and there is considerable diversity of situations among countries. It is only possible to draw out broad themes about the experience so far, with illustrative examples from particular countries. HIV/AIDS involves complex issues of gender and sexuality. Here, the primary focus is with the implications of HIV/AIDS for women, particularly heterosexual women."
