Abstract: This report discusses the gender dimensions of the impact of HIV/AIDS in Sub- Saharan Africa, with a particular focus on Uganda and some reference to Malawi. The Ugandan Government has, from early on in its recognition of HIV/AIDS as a serious health, social and economic problem for the country, been relatively open about the scale of the problem and has allowed considerable indigenous and foreign research into HIV/AIDS. As a result there is substantially more material on HIV/AIDS in Uganda than any other African country. The limited existing material available on HIV/AIDS in Malawi consists mainly of seroprevalence surveys; discussion of social or gender aspects is absent. Inferences drawn for Malawi, therefore, are based partly on the experience of other African countries, particularly Uganda, and to a lesser extent Zambia and Zaire.
