  2. Gender, poverty and intergenerational vulnerability to HIV/AIDS

    This article looks at HIV/AIDS, poverty and gender, and focuses on young girls and old women.

It briefly outlines institutional responses, and ends up with conclusion and recommendations for development planners to combine gender and age analysis in any development or humanitarian work.
