This volume presents and reviews a wide range of recent research on sexuality and sexual behaviours in India to better understand the patterns of risk among different sections of the Indian populace. Participants in India's HIV//AIDS campaign now recognize that the epidemic has great complexities which have to be understood in its entirety in order to combat it. The book contains three main components: an overview describing the HIV epidemic in India and the public and the non-governmental approaches; perspectives from communities and population sectors on premarital, marital and extra marital sexuality and the risk of transmission; and the lessons learnt in terms of research methodology and the development of new approaches to HIV//AIDS.
