A Guide to the Clinical Care of Women with HIV is a comprehensive clinical manual that addresses the primary care needs unique to women with HIV infection. The target audience is clinicians who provide primary care to women as well as those seeking a more in-depth understanding of how to care for women with HIV/AIDS. This 2005 edition of the guide, first published in 2001, has been updated and chapters have been added on international issues and nutrition. A manual devoted specifically to the care of women with HIV is important. Because women are often challenged by social isolation, poverty, discrimination and lack of access to quality health care, they tend to be diagnosed later and to have poorer health status than men. They must contend with vulnerability related to reproductive and gender issues and domestic violence. Finally, women living with HIV are usually relied upon to meet the care needs of children and other family members, many of whom are also HIV-positive.
