Overview

India is firmly in the grip of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and it is believed that the numbers of those infected far outstrip available estimates. Even though the epidemic is primarily transmitted through sexual contact, there is as yet little awareness of sexual mores in the country.

Overview

India is firmly in the grip of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and it is believed that the numbers of those infected far outstrip available estimates. Even though the epidemic is primarily transmitted through sexual contact, there is as yet little awareness of sexual mores in the country. This, in turn, inhibits the development of effective interventions to halt the spread of the virus. This book contributes greatly to our understanding of contemporary sexual behaviour and sexual attitudes in both rural and urban India and in different strata of society, including adolescent girls, sex workers (male and female), college students and slum dwellers. Presenting case studies from around the country, the original essays in this book identify the contextual, cultural and social factors that contribute to the risk of infection.
