Masculinities and Gender Transformation in HIV-and Violence-Prevention Programs

Men at Risk

In the final chapter of Men at Risk, the key concepts drawn upon throughout the book in order to analyze HIV prevention programming both domestically and globally for heterosexually-active men are returned to and results are summarized. Coverage of what is gained by making visible a) the concept of a sex-gender-sexuality triad, b) a masculinities framework (institutional privileges, costs of masculinities, and differences and inequalities among men) and c) an intersectional framework in HIV prevention programming is assessed. Chapter 5 also highlights why it is the case that so many non-governmental organizations formed to improve the HIV-related behaviors of citizens globally when structural promises of the state fall short. Chapter 5 interprets the qualitative data presented in chapter 4 so as to critically assess whether the “responsibilized citizenship” that emerges in gender transformative interventions form an adequate basis for gendered social change that improves HIV and violence outcomes. Suggestions for the next generation of HIV prevention programming are made in this chapter with a focus on structural, masculinities, and intersectional interventions.
