Summary
  • The Invisible Epidemic tells the dramatic, heartbreaking, and often inspiring story of women and the AIDS epidemic, revealing the startling truths behind the statistics and the experiences of the many women at the forefront of AIDS activism, prevention, and caretaking. Tracing the chronology of what happened when a number of women across the country recognized the extent to which HIV/AIDS was endangering women and attempted to do something about it, Gena Corea exposes
  • once and for all the "invisible" nature of women's place in the AIDS crisis and confronts the inaccuracies behind the many long-held assumptions of the primarily male medical community, the media, and the often misinformed general public. From the first cases of young women dying of "pneumonia" in the early 1980s, to widespread denial of the threat of AIDS to women in ensuing years, to the disturbing discoveries of the recent past, The Invisible Epidemic makes clear that
  • the historical precedent for inadequate research into women's health concerns has prevented any intelligent assessment of women's risk or models for women's care and treatment. Ultimately, The Invisible Epidemic brings sharply into focus the extent to which AIDS has become not just a health issue, but a much larger social issue that threatens all of us
