Abstract

OLIVEIRA, Rosa Maria Rodrigues de. Gender, human rights and socioeconomic impact of AIDS in Brazil. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 2006, vol.40, suppl., pp. 80-87. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89102006000800011.

The paper critically analyzes, from the gender standpoint, official results presented in the Brazilian government report to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). Specifically, the fulfillment of 2003 targets set forth in the United Nations Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS, under the category of Human Rights and Reduction of the Economic and Social Impact of AIDS, are evaluated. Key concepts are highlighted, including indicators and strategies that may help civilian society better monitor these targets until 2010.

Keywords : Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome [prevention & control]; Impacts on health; Human rights; Socioeconomic factors; Non-governmental organizations; Gender and health.
