This conference is sponsored by the Yale Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA). An agenda, with list of speakers, and registration information are available online at: http://cira.med.yale.edu/lpe/index.html
Registration Deadline is Thursday, March 23, 2006. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged as lunch will be provided for pre-registrants only. For more information, visit the Web site or contact Amy Smoyer at (203)764-8454 or amy.smoyer@yale.edu

In this conference, CIRA seeks to promote discussion and further research about the ways that gender inequality manifests itself in contemporary society and is, in turn, associated with HIV in women. In particular, we will focus on the gendered aspects of large scale social disruptions, as well as the gendered dimensions of drug use, with a focus on crack cocaine. We will also consider some approaches to HIV prevention that involve promoting women’s control over protective methods, such as mi crobicides and the female condom, and discuss how to include men in struggles for gender equality.
