AIDS and Masculinity in the African City

Robert Wyrod

University of California Press

In this concluding chapter, this book’s key themes are summarized, and the author makes the case for why masculine sexual privilege has persisted in Uganda in the context of AIDS. The broader implications of this research for understanding masculinity as a social process are then explored. Finally, the chapter addresses the policy implications of this ethnography, emphasizing that gender inequality and economic inequality need to be simultaneously addressed in order to truly end the AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa.

Keywords:   masculinity, HIV prevention, AIDS, gender, sexuality
