Engaging with the typical paradigm in HIV learn that portrays merely women—and no longer heterosexually energetic men—as being “vulnerable” to HIV, Dworkin examines the gaps in public health and wellbeing wisdom that bring about substandard therapy for HIV transmission and an infection between heterosexual males either locally and globally. She examines an enormous array of structural components that form men’s HIV transmission hazards and likewise makes a speciality of a comparatively new class of world wellbeing and fitness courses with males often called “gender-transformative” that seeks to maneuver males towards gender equality within the identify of better healthiness. Dworkin makes feedback for the subsequent new release of gender-transformative overall healthiness interventions by way of calling for masculinities-based and structurally pushed HIV prevention programming. completely researched and theoretically grounded, Men at Risk provides a different method of HIV prevention on the intersection of sociological and public healthiness examine.
