Edited by Dr. Jacqueline Gahagan -Professor of Health Promotion and Head of the Health Promotion Division in the School of Health and Human Performance at Dalhousie University- and due this Spring, Women and HIV Prevention in Canada is a collection of original readings with contributions from academics, researchers, and practitioners. This book covers such topics as the epidemiology of women and HIV/AIDS in Canada, enhanced surveillance specific to women, pregnancy and fertility issues, housing as a determinant of health, HIV prevention and prisons, new HIV prevention technologies, race, transgender issues, and other pressing primary and secondary HIV prevention issues for women.
Women and HIV Prevention in Canada’s content aligns with courses in health sciences, health studies, health promotion, community health, epidemiology, nursing, and women’s studies. This book is fundamental for scholars and researchers in the field, as it is the only book that brings together an overview of the current state of women and HIV prevention in Canada.
