The world is now entering the fourth decade of the AIDS epidemic without any cure or foolproof vaccine in sight. A major part of India is still in the first phase of ignorance about the HIV and the need for ending any discrimination against the infected whereas we should now develop mechanisms for care and support of the infected and the affected. The status of women continues to be low and the hatred and rejection facing a positive woman is widespread. Gender differentials both at the policy as well as the programme levels exist. Access to health care institutions is poor and there is hardly any counselling, which keeps the needs of infected or affected women in focus. There is a need of trained social workers both in the urban and rural areas to meet the counselling requirements of a person from the infection stage till the end and, if possible, afterwards to the bereaved family. The book attempts to point out all these issues and the need to develop an all- inclusive set of policies and plans of action. Author Bio: Sudhir Varma has been a member of the Indian Administrative Service belonging to the Rajasthan cadre. He has served both in the Central and the State governments in various capacities. He did his PhD on Policy and Administration for Women s Development with Special Reference to Rajasthan. He was trained as a trainer on HIV/AIDS and Development by the UNDP in 1991 and since then has been working on AIDS awareness generation among the youth in Rajasthan. He has participated in a number of international conferences on HIV/AIDS. He has written widely on gender and development issues. Presently, he is Director, Shiv Charan Mathur Social Policy Research Institute, Jaipur.
