AIDS and Adolescents
Taylor & Francis, 1997 - Medical - 206 pages
Aids and Adolescents provides insight into a wide range of adolescent issues. Much of the HIV epidemic response has been at the individual level in the hope that this narrow focus will provide the key to containment and resolution of the spread of the disease. In this text a series of contributions have been compiled to explore adolescent issues ranging from sexual behaviour, health education campaigns, to HIV prevention and HIV/AIDS care.
Chapters provide an overview of adolescent problems, such as homelessness, pregnancy, and gender, and explore why these problems are so often overlooked. They examine facts and fictions associated with adolescent risk, challenging some of the basic current notions underpinning approaches to the subject. There are particular focused studies of Australian adolescents' beliefs about HIV and STDs and also the American adolescent's perceptions of drug injection.
