The Need for Intersectionality in HIV/AIDS Prevention

Men at Risk

Chapter 3 critically assesses the existing underlying emphasis in public and global health HIV prevention research--and discourse—that is focused on the popular frame of “vulnerable” women and “invulnerable” men who are heterosexually-active. Drawing on research within epidemiology, HIV/AIDS, gender relations, global health, and multi-racial feminism, Chapter 3 introduces how intersectionality centrally matters for a more clear understanding of why men are affected by HIV. Care is taken in this chapter to use an intersectional framework to understand which heterosexually-active men are most at risk of HIV.
