Policy makers have long identified the gender dynamics of HIV, but still need to engage with them effectively. This book examines the gender context of risk and critiques policy responses, contributing to the feminist task of de-invisibilising gender as structural violence.
Looking at how these gendered structures are responded to at the local level in Malawi, it contributes to the Global Health scholarship, which typically obscures the micro level where health is experienced.
The challenge for the post-2015 development agenda is to augment gender social justice and ensure freedom from structural violence. Addressing structural violence is the harder task, but a fundamental one if the effectiveness of the response is not to be undermined by unequal gender relations.
