dc.description.abstract Women of reproductive age in South Africa are disproportionately affected by HIV, and represent the fastest growing group diagnosed with the virus. Despite this epidemiological picture, very little attention has been placed on the sexual and reproductive health needs of these women, particularly in South Africa, and other developing countries. This study, a sub-study of a much bigger study, explored the sexual and reproductive health needs of women newly diagnosed with HIV, and how these translate into their human rights. In-depth interviews, within qualitative methodologies, were conducted and analyzed with fourteen women from Gugulethu, Cape Town, who screened HIV-positive during enrolment or who seroconverted during the course of the larger microbicide, Carraguard study carried out by the Population Council and University of Cape Town. This study is novel in its exploration of these issues amongst women who are newly diagnosed and who were recruited outside of a health-care setting. en_ZA
