- HIV Prevention With Latinos: Theory, Research, and Practice
- Vivir con VIH/SIDA: Guia para latinos (Spanish Edition)
This book, written by leading authorities on theory, research, and practice in preventing HIV with diverse Latino populations and communities, responds to the diminishing returns of the behavioral model of HIV risk by deconstructing the many social ecological contexts of risk within the Latino experience. Each of the chapters explores the most innovative thinking and original research on the prevention of HIV for a comprehensive span of subgroups and situations, including: preventing HIV in LGBT Latinos through community involvement and AIDS activism; in migrant laborers by scaling up community and cultural resources; in adolescent Latinas by facilitating communication with their mothers about sex; by decreasing the racism, homophobia, and poverty often experienced by Latino men who have sex with men; in transgender Latinas by decreasing familial, peer, and social rejection, and by providing structures of care at local, state, and national levels; and in Latinas by improving their economic autonomy as well as improving gender-equity ideologies among men.
Written for the Hispanic community in clear, simplified language for the newly diagnosed, their families, and their caregivers, this guide addresses all of the critical issues associated with HIV/AIDS. Disclosing useful information and motivating those afflicted, this useful reference addresses topics such as understanding symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options; choosing the right medical care; practicing good self-care through nutrition and exercise; and accepting the importance of medical compliance.
