Examine the biopsychosocial, environmental, spiritual, and policy issues that affect HIV/AIDS prevention/service delivery issues for Caribbean youth!This groundbreaking book provides an overview and informed discussion of HIV/AIDS as it affects children and adolescents in Antigua, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, and The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. With contributions from noted HIV/AIDS experts in the region, it examines the biopsychosocial, environmental, spiritual, and policy issues that impact HIV/AIDS prevention/service delivery issues for Caribbean youth. HIV/AIDS and Children in the English Speaking Caribbean breaks the silence on this subject that has existed throughout the Caribbean--second only to Sub-Saharan Africa in terms of the number of people infected with the disease--by focusing attention on the issues, needs, perspectives, policies, and research that impact those affected by the epidemic in that region. This unique book gives special attention to the distinctive differences among Caribbean countries with varying customs based on colonial influences including language, culture, traditions, and religion. User-friendly tables and figures make the statistical information easy to understand.HIV/AIDS and Children in the English Speaking Caribbean discusses a diversity of topics, including:
psycho-cultural issues and adolescents
the impact of dance hall music on HIV and adolescents
school programs
evaluation of residential placements for children with AIDS
sexual risk-taking behaviors of Jamaican street boys
the inaugural lecture on AIDS at the University of the West Indies
. . . and much more. Everyone whose professional life brings them into contact with this population, including social workers, psychologists, counselors, clinicians, nurses and other health care professionals, as well as educators and their students will find HIV/AIDS and Children in the English Speaking Caribbean a very useful resource for understanding the devastating impact of the HIV/AIDS virus on children and adolescents in that part of the world.
