This book examines some traditional Shona believes and practices that compromise HIV/AIDS prevention programmes in Zimbabwe. The authors made clear how the Shona tradition exposes married women to HIV infection and how it promotes male domination. Male risk behaviors have been condoned at the expense of women who bear the brand. Though the Government of Zimbabwe has made effort in addressing the HIV pandemic, traditional practices continue to complicate all efforts as men still indulge in risk behaviors. The book also observes that issues of early marriages, patriarchy, socioeconomic factors among other things continue to expose married women to the risk of HIV.
