The AIDS Pandemic: Searching for a Global Response 1st ed. 2018 Edition

This ambitious book provides a comprehensive history of the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Programme on AIDS (GPA), using it as a unique lens to trace the global response to the AIDS pandemic. The authors describe how WHO came initially to assume leadership of the global response, relate the strategies and approaches WHO employed over the years, and expound on the factors that led to the Programme’s demise and subsequent formation of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). The authors examine the global impact of this momentous transition, portray the current status of the global response to AIDS, and explore the precarious situation that WHO finds itself in today as a lead United Nations agency in global health.

Several aspects of the global response – the strategies adopted, the roads taken and not taken, and the lessons learned – can provide helpful guidance to the global health community as it continues tackling the AIDS pandemic and confronts future global pandemics.

Included in the coverage:

·The response before the global response

·Building and coordinating a multi-sectoral response

·Containing the global spread of HIV

·Addressing stigma, discrimination, and human rights

·Rethinking global AIDS governance

·UNAIDS: finding its place in congested waters

The AIDS Pandemic will find an engaged audience among policymakers, students, faculty, journalists, researchers, and other health professionals working and interested in global health, public health, the World Health Organization, HIV/AIDS, global pandemics, the history of medicine, and global health policy. It will also interest those involved in international relations, international development, global affairs and governance, the United Nations, and NGOs.

Global Perspectives on Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health Across the Lifecourse 1st ed. 2018 Edition

This expansive survey spotlights pervasive issues affecting girls’ and women’s sexual and reproductive health across the lifecourse. Research from diverse countries around the world analyzes the complex relationships among biological, psychological, sociocultural, and economic issues―particularly in terms of inequities―as they shape women’s lives. Major challenges and possibilities for intervention are examined in their national context and with their global implications, including child marriage/motherhood, reproductive care and access, fertility, childbearing, contraception, abortion, HIV/STIs, gender-based violence, sexual pleasure, and menopause. In these forceful dispatches, a consistent human rights perspective emphasizes women’s control, autonomy, and agency in all stages of their lives.

A sampling of topics covered:

  • Girl child marriage: a persistent global women’s health and human rights violation
  • Investigating challenges and resilience among women living with obstetric fistula in Kenya
  • A qualitative exploration of mainstream and social media reflections on abortion
  • A continuum of severity of sexual intimate partner violence among black women in the United States
  • Economic empowerment to improve sexual and reproductive health among women and girls

Summarizing an interdisciplinary field on research and practical levels, Global Perspectives on Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health Across the Lifecourse will be an invaluable text for undergraduate and graduate courses in a wide range of fields, including public health, global health, women’s studies, sociology, anthropology, gender studies, and human rights.
