AIDS and Livelihoods. Securing property and inheritance rights
Call for articles
“AIDS and Livelihoods. Securing property and inheritance rights” – this is the title of the reader of the aidsfocus.ch conference, No. 109 of the Bulletin of Medicus Mundi Switzerland. Conference and reader will look at the complex inter-relationships of HIV/AIDS, poverty and securing livelihoods in the countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America. These complex relationships crystallize in the issue of property and inheritance rights of women, children and old people. The example also shows the importance of a comprehensive and multisectoral approach and the cooperation of organisations in international health and AIDS with organisations that rather focus on agriculture and economic development.
The papers of the conference will be published in the reader. Additional papers with stories, experiences, discussions and reflections on the issue will complement the picture.
