Summary: For many women, the advice “Use a condom!” is not enough to help protect them from HIV infection. As Women and AIDS reveals, “negotiating” safer sex practices is a very complex issue for women who are involved in relationships where they do not enjoy physical, social, or economic equality. The book''s authors maintain that the key to curbing the spread of HIV and to caring for those already infected—is communication. The first volume to address HIV/AIDS and women from a communication perspective, this helpful guidebook addresses how women might achieve safer sexual and drug injection practices with partners, but it also explores women''s negotiation of the health care system as patients, medical research subjects, and caregivers.
