Description:

This book originates from a course offered at the LSHTM as part of their health related MSc portfolio. It has been running for over 10 years inhouse and has recently been adapted for the popular Distance Learning courses offered by LSHTM; hence the need to publish the book so it is available to DL students. This book has four main themes and will be developed into four sections: Concepts; Vulnerability & risk; Groups associated with risk; Interventions; Measuring & Assessing Sexual Health status. The chapters will all consider the political and historical contexts of the topic, and include global examples, case studies and all the usual pedagogical features found in these series titles.Contributors:Sevgi O Aral, Chris Bonell, Helen Burchett, Joanna Busza, Martine Collumbien, Simon Forrest, Rebecca French, Claudia Garcia-Moreno, Anna Glasier, Jami Leichliter, Kirstin Mitchell, Will Nutland, Thomas Peterman, Elisabeth Pisani, Kaye Wellings, Meg Wiggins and Maria Zuurmond.
