Beschreibung:

While much has been discoursed on HIV among the key populations, especially those indulging in high risk behaviors, lesser has been the concentration to understand HIV among married women. In India, it's both, the concentrated nature of HIV epidemic among the 'most at risk populations' and socio-cultural dilemmas leading to the stringency to envision HIV among married women, that this issue hasn't been underscored adequately - underlying assumption being marriage as synonymous to monogamy and fidelity, which might not be the case for either partners. This book highlights the trends and dynamics of HIV among married women in India, an otherwise under-discussed arena and calls for concerted efforts of stakeholders - social scientists, demographers, public health practitioners, policy framers, to devise sensitive strategies and family centric interventions addressing unmet sexual and HIV prevention needs, of married women, without jeopardizing the ethos of family life.
