Recent behavioral HIV prevention interventions that take gender relations into account focus on two separate tracks of work—one on “women’s empowerment” and one focused on “work with men.” No research has considered the points of overlap, synergies between, tensions and contradictions of these two approaches. Chapter 3 analyzes the promises and limitations of both tracks of work in order to show how these lines of work can be easily complementary and not at odds. Significant time is spent in this chapter underscoring how and why a sole focus on women’s empowerment or a sole focus on men in HIV programming can limit the benefits of a relational analysis of gender relations and HIV.
