Description

This book contributes greatly to our understanding of contemporary sexual behaviour and sexual attitudes in both rural and urban India and in different strata of society, including adolescent girls, sex workers (male and female), college students and slum dwellers. Presenting case studies from around the country, the original essays in this book identify the contextual, cultural and social factors that contribute to the risk of infection. They cover three broad areas:

- An overview of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in India and the response of both the government and the public.
- Perspectives from diverse communities concerning premarital, marital and extramarital sexuality.
- Lessons learned at the national level in terms of research methodology and in the development of new approaches to HIV/AIDS.

Overall, the book stresses the need to view sexuality and risk in a broad cultural and social context, as also emphasizes the need to learn directly from the community in order to develop innovative programmes.
