  1. The competing discourses of HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa : discourses of rights and empowerment vs. discourses of control and exclusion.

    Article - En anglais

    The competing discourses of HIV/AIDS circulating in sub-Saharan Africa are identified.

    These are medical, medico-moral, developmental (distinguishing between « women in development » and gender and development perspectives), legal, ethical, and the rigths discourse of groups living with HIV/AIDS and of African pressure groups.

    The analytical framework is that of discourse analysis as exemplified by Michel Foucault.

    The medical and medico -moral are identified as dominant.

    They shape the perceptions of the pandemic, our responses to it, and to those living with HIV/AIDS.
