I am a master's student at the University of Iowa writing a paper on the increasing incidence of HIV infection in women from a feminist's perspective. Do you have any information or web sites that would be of any help to me? Thanks for your time and consideration, W. Walton

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. I have a few suggestions:

1.) The Ms. Foundation for Women--has a women and AIDS division--which specifically funds work in this area. They should be able to help you by putting you in touch with projects that work with this specific constituency.

2.) Hours ago, I was on a panel with Sandra Estepa who is a Regional Women's Health Coordinator for the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and she talked most specifically about the work her division is doing with women and HIV--and specifically with curbing the spread of HIV among young and minority women. She said that all of this information was available through the HHS website. So I recommend that you try those resources.

3.) Under our Women's Health Links, we have a "Woman and AIDS" section. There we feature information on a group called Aniz, which is specifically working with HIV positive women in the Atlanta, GA area.
