"This manual was created as a practical resource for persons with disabilities and health care clinicians who work with these clients. It includes research, clinical expertise, and product information to aid with dialogue surrounding sexual and reproductive issues and disabilities. The information presented here is not prescriptive, and the specific products not recommended per se, but are meant to provide examples and illustrations of some of the potential options that can be introduced into the sexual practices of the individual or be used as an adjunct in the discussions of sexuality and disability by the health care clinician. The devices included are a sampling of what is available (in Canada) in 2009"

Cross-generational and transactional sexual relations in sub-Saharan Africa : prevalance of behaviour and implications for negotiating safer sexual practices

LUKE, Nancy
KURZ, Kathleen
September 2002

Expand view

This paper is a literature and evidence survey of cross-generational and transactional sex in Africa. It examines the age and economic asymmetries in sexual relationships in an African context, prevalence of cross-generational and transactional sexual relationships, adolescent girls' and men's motivations and adolescent girls' negotiating power in relationships. It comes to the conclusion that adolescent girls have power when negotiating the start and end of relationships and they are strongly motivated to enter into cross-generational relationships for the material benefits and status that they bring. However, once they have entered the relaltionship the balance of power shifts to the man, especially in the context of gift-giving.
The paper also examines the evidence around cultural acceptance of cross-generational and transactional sexual relationships, violence and rape within the relationships, multiple relationships, and outcome of the relationships. The authors' recommendations are to: gather policy support for changing the social norm; mount programmatic responses; conduct research to investigate the success of programmatic responses, document the policy process, and fill other important information gaps

Five myths about AIDS that have misdirected research and treatment

ROOTBERNSTEIN, Robert, S
1995

Expand view

Reviews a range of research to argue that AIDS is caused by a combination of factors, so is a 'synergistic' disease, rather than solely being caused by HIV infection. Argues that research has been misunderstood in a number of key areas and argues: different groups develop AIDS at different rates which can only be explained by other factors that may vary across risk groups; examples of people who are infected with HIV reverting to being HIV negative are common; antibodies for HIV may signal that the effective 'T-cell' immune response has been unsuccessful and thus herald the loss of immune regulation; a range of nonretroviral treatments such as safer sex practices, elimination of drug use, high nutrient diets and limiting re-exposure to HIV and its co-factors have proven to be effective means of peventing or delaying the onset of AIDS; many immunosuppressive factors are as highly correlated with AIDS risk groups as HIV
