Abstract

This paper synthesises the different research findings in Malawi to explore how gender roles and relations affect the way in which key diseases related to poverty are experienced at the community level. We highlight background information on Malawi with an overview of the three diseases: HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria” and of the methods used and provide a conceptual framework on how gender shapes (1) vulnerability to TB, HIV/AIDS and malaria, (2) access and adherence to services and (3) the impact of being ill on individuals and households.
