Counting female-headed households

Year: 2008 Author: IAASTD/Ketill Berger, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
In SSA women make up two-thirds of those infected with HIV/AIDS. This adds additional burdens for women as producers of food and as family caretakers. Labor loss due to illness, need to care for family members and paid employment required to cover medical costs may cause families to decrease their farming activities.
