Description :

This briefing note describes the linkages between women and HIV/AIDS, and the impact on national economies. In addition to young women being at greatest risk for transmission, women also bear the brunt of the costs of HIV/AIDS. Women's risks are exacerbated by poverty, low status and dependence on men. Women's lack of education fuels discrimination in the labour market, where women may also experience stigma or violence.
