GRIN Verlag, 2012 - 20 pages
Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Health Science, grade: 1.00, University of Vienna (Institut der Kultur- und Sozialanthropologie an der Universität Wien), language: English, abstract: Around the world, in the last decades since the appearing of HIV/AIDS, the prevalence of women infected by HIV is raising faster than the prevalence of men. Although this development had been recognized soon, it was not posible to stop it. On the basis of these facts, I will have a closer look at the situation of women in Latin America concerning the disease and I want to review the "feminization" of HIV/AIDS. Furthermore, I will give an overview of two Gender constructing concepts of Latin America, Machismo and Marianismo, which I seek to challenge in its impacts on (the development of) programs and organsisations concerning the epidemic, and following, in women.
