Dr. Mindry draws on research conducted in South Africa, Uganda, and Malawi to examine why reproductive health care is still falling far short of meeting the reproductive rights and needs of PLHIV. She examines the benevolent authoritarian discourses shaping the development of policies to deliver reproductive care and the gendered discourses and practices shaping services for PLHIV. She asks, what does it mean to provide comprehensive reproductive services, to include men and women, and to focus on the family?
