HIV and AIDS

Publication Subtitle: Women First in Mozambique
Publication Year: 2011
Publication Author: Saranga Jain, Margaret Greene, Zayid Douglas, Myra Betron, Katherine Fritz

A complex matrix of factors, such as low literacy, early sexual initiation, and limited economic opportunities, increases the vulnerability of women to HIV infection in Mozambique. The Women First program addresses the role that poverty and lack of access to health information play in the spread of HIV through legal rights and income-generating activities.

This case study was prepared by the AIDSTAR-One project. As an AIDSTAR-One partner organization, ICRW provided technical oversight on this publication. The full case studies series and findings are available at AIDSTAR-One.
