DescriptionThis article explores the issue of women providing unpaid care for family members living with HIV in South Africa and Zimbabwe. State policies rely on women providing home-based care, in the context of failing health systems. This has the effect of impoverishing women, and reinforcing gender stereotypes. Recommendations will be given on how to make policies more gender-sensitive. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
