Promoting the Survival of Rural Mothers with HIV/AIDS: A development strategy for Southern Africa



Sam Page underlines the fact that given African women's roles as mothers and farmers, the household food security and family survival of millions of Africans are under serious threat with the HIV-AIDS pandemic. She calls for an integrated effort by the international community to help the millions of women who are HIV positive to achieve a life expectancy more comparable to those living with HIV in western countries. Development (2001) 44, 40–46. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110290
