Globalization and women's vulnerabilities to HIV and AIDS

Case Studies & Research
27 p.

This paper - largely inspired by Colleen O'Manique's analysis in her article "Globalization and gendered vulnerabilities to HIV and AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa" - seeks to uncover some of the eff ects of the global political economy on women's vulnerability to HIV and AIDS. Using as a base C. O'Manique's examination of structural adjustment programmes and global trade regulations applying specifically to intellectual property and agriculture, this paper attempts to draw the readers' attention to some of the ways in which specific macroeconomic frameworks can contribute to local risk contexts for women and capacities to respond to HIV and AIDS.
