Tabitha Mulyampiti on Gender, Health and HIV/AIDS in Africa
Gender and health covers the broad discussion of gender as a determinant of health or well-being. Mulyampiti explores how sex and gender interact with other factors to influence health and considers the different health behaviors and expectations of men and women (the social construction of gender and health). The paper will also consider gender-based health problems with particular emphasis on HIV/AIDS in Africa. Other related problems including violence against women, child abuse, trafficking, and commercial sex work will also be examined.
