Description

HIV infection is rising rapidly, particularly among heterosexual women and children. This epidemic if forcing social workers and other service providers to confront a wide range of new public policy problems such as discrimination in employment, housing, services, and education, medical testing and confidentiality, reproductive freedom, health care, child welfare, and child custody. The Social Welfare of Women and Children with HIV and AIDS provides a comprehensive overview of public policy and legislation regarding these issues, including federal and state statutes governing public services, and their implications for practice.
