Working With Hiv Aids by Jenny Page

Original Title: Working With Hiv Aids

HIV/AIDS affects every walk of life, and has a profound influence on everything we do -- in our closest relationships, at work, at home, at school, college or university. Not a day goes by without a reference to the pandemic in newspapers or on the electronic media. Just as the virus infects the body and every cell in the body, so it affects every single person living on the planet. This book addresses various issues around HIV/AIDS, what it is, how it is spread, what can be done to avoid becoming HIV positive and how to live positively once someone is infected, all discussed in the context of the workplace. "Working with HIV/AIDS" has been developed around the SAQA Fundamental Unit Standard 13915 (Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of HIV/AIDS in a workplace, and its effects on a business sub-sector, own organisation and a specific workplace) for use on NQF level 3. In-line with the unit standard requirements, the book includes a variety of formative assessment activities, using individual, pair and group work assignments, that should appeal to a wide range of learners or readers, as well as actual case studies, fact boxes, other useful and up-to-date information and glossary terms. The book should appeal to a wide audience, from learners at schools and tertiary institutions to members of the general public.

Mental Health Practitioner S Guide To Hiv Aids by Sana Loue

Original Title: Mental Health Practitioner S Guide To Hiv Aids

Although efforts have been made and continue to be made to reduce the rate of HIV transmission in the U.S. and globally, the rates continue to increase in the majority of countries. In the U.S., members of minority communities remain especially at risk of HIV transmission. An individual’s discovery that he or she has contracted HIV, or that a loved one has contracted the illness, often raises significant issues that necessitate interaction with mental health professionals. Mental Health Practitioner’s Guide to HIV/AIDS serves as a quick desk reference for professionals who may be less familiar with the terminology used in HIV/AIDS care and services.

The Hiv Aids Edpidemic In Nigeria by James Olaitan Ajayi

Original Title: The Hiv Aids Edpidemic In Nigeria

This work examines some of the ethical problems of the HIV disease in Nigeria. The first part argues that the spread if HIV has been facilitated in the country not just because of sexual promiscuity or harmful cultural practices, but also mainly as a result of socio-economic situations or problems in the country. The second part, analysing the principles of responsibility, non-discrimination, confidentiality and justice, examines the preventive strategies that are needed to curb the infection rate of the disease. The study also deals with specific moral issues in the prevention of the disease namely, the prophylactics debate and the needle exchange programs.

Hiv Aids In South Africa 25 Years On by Poul Rohleder

Original Title: Hiv Aids In South Africa 25 Years On

Much has happened since the first appearance of AIDS in 1981: it has been identified, studied, and occasionally denied. The virus has shifted host populations and spread globally. Medicine, the social sciences, and world governments have joined forces to combat and prevent the disease. And South Africa has emerged as ground zero for the pandemic. The editors of HIV/AIDS in South Africa 25 Years On present the South African crisis as a template for addressing the myriad issues surrounding the epidemic worldwide, as the book brings together a widely scattered body of literature, analyzes psychosocial and sexual aspects contributing to HIV transmission and prevention, and delves into complex intersections of race, gender, class, and politics. Including largely overlooked populations and issues (e.g., prisoners, persons with disabilities, stigma), as well as challenges shaping future research and policy, the contributors approach their topics with rare depth, meticulous research, carefully drawn conclusions, and profound compassion. Among the topics covered: The relationship between HIV and poverty, starting from the question, "Which is the determinant and which is the consequence?" Epidemiology of HIV among women and men: concepts of femininity and masculinity, and gender inequities as they affect HIV risk; gender-specific prevention and intervention strategies. The impact of AIDS on infants and young children: risk and protective factors; care of children by HIV-positive mothers; HIV-infected children. Current prevention and treatment projects, including local-level responses, community-based work, and VCT (voluntary counseling and testing) programs. New directions: promoting circumcision, vaccine trials, "positive prevention." South Africa’s history of AIDS denialism. The urgent lessons in this book apply both globally and locally, making HIV/AIDS in South Africa 25 Years On uniquely instructive and useful for professionals working in HIV/AIDS and global public health.

Hiv Aids A Very Short Introduction by Alan Whiteside

Original Title: Hiv Aids A Very Short Introduction

HIV/AIDS is without doubt the worst epidemic to hit humankind since the Black Death. Despite rapid scientific advances, there is still no cure and the drugs are expensive and toxic. In some of the worst affected countries, life expectancy has plummeted to below 35 years, which has led to a serious decline in economic growth, a sharp rise in orphaning, and the imminent collapse of health care systems. This Very Short Introduction tackles the science, the international and local politics, the fascinating demographics, and the devastating consequences of the disease, and explores how we have - and must - respond.

Hiv Aids And Sexuality by Michael W Ross

Original Title: Hiv Aids And Sexuality

In this important book, editor Michael Ross brings together the latest knowledge and research concerning the relationship between HIV and AIDS and sexual functioning. HIV/AIDS and Sexuality explores the experiences of being HIV-infected and the impact of infection on an individual's sexuality. It describes differences that may be associated with individuals who are infected or concerned about infection, and it provides new in-depth analyses of the effect of HIV on sexuality and sexual risks. The book provides clinical perspectives on sexual problems associated with HIV infection as well as some treatment approaches. Contributing authors represent the United States, Australia, and Europe and discuss heterosexual men and women, gay men, lesbians, and injecting drug users. This diversity provides a more complete picture of the experiences of people with HIV in terms of explicit and implicit sexuality. Chapters include cross-sectional and cohort study designs as well as qualitative, quantitative, and clinical approaches. Some of the topics explored are: the centrality of sexuality to equality of life and identity and the impact of HIV on sexuality in gay-identified men the psychological impact of making changes in sexual behavior on gay men with HIV infection risk behaviors in seropositive and seronegative women a study of a cohort of HIV-infected women associated with the military sexual addiction in gay men and its association with HIV risks overt and subtle communications processes that occur between health care providers and clients about sexuality and HIV stages of change in safer sexual practices in a cohort of gay men personality variables associated with risk and infection in both homosexual and heterosexual men HIV/AIDS and Sexuality opens up the area of sexuality in people living with HIV and focuses much-needed attention on the issues involved in sexual expression, HIV transmission risk, and living with HIV infection. This book is an illuminating exploration into the subject that helps professionals better understand their clients and thus provide more compassionate and effective care.

Hiv Aids by United Nations. Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific

Original Title: Hiv Aids

It is estimated that by the end of 2002, there were over 8 million people living with HIV/AIDS in the Asian and Pacific region, of whom 2.6 million are aged between 15 to 24 years. A number of development and socio-economic issues are key to the spread of the disease in the region, including poverty, gender inequality, low levels of education, population mobility and a lack of access to basic services and to information on the disease. This publication explores these dynamics by considering a number of community programmes and initiatives that have been developed in response to the challenges of HIV/AIDS. These stories highlight the importance of breaking social, cultural and religious barriers to dispel myths about the disease, and the need for effective partnership working between all aspects of civil society.
