Additional Information: This chapter addresses the human rights challenges facing health policy makers in the face of HIV/AIDS. O'Keefe and Chinouya examine the difficulties in realising public health goals for black African women who have migrated to the United Kingdom, given that public health initiatives frequently lack proper grounding in, or sensitivity to, the tenuous social and political situation of the migrant communities or the gendered nature of the traditional cultures that influence those communities. O'Keefe and Chinouya attempt to show how globalization influences the health care and human rights of black African women in Western and non-Western developing nations and how drawing on specific cultural practices can resolve some of these impediments.
