A summary of Special Collection 1: Social Interactions and HIV/AIDS in Rural Africa

By Susan Watkins, Eliya Msiyaphazi Zulu, Hans-Peter Kohler, Jere Behrman


Special Collection 1: Social Interactions and HIV/AIDS in Rural Africa is a set of papers stemming from the conference "Research on Demographic Aspects of HIV/AIDS in Rural Africa", held at the Population Studies Center, University of Pennsylvania, October 28, 2002. The aim of the conference was to provide a forum for the presentation of results, to an audience of experts, on a variety of demographic aspects relevant for the study of HIV/AIDS in rural Africa. The aim of the special collection is to make these results available to a wider audience.
Thirteen contributions were submitted to the journal Demographic Research and went through peer review. They were published on September 19, 2003 as the journal’s first “special collection” of material on a common topic. This short summary of the collection has been added to Volume 9 in order to include full details of the collection in the current running volume as well. The following pages list the contributions and give direct links where readers may download the material from the Demographic Research website. A full list of all papers is also available at: http://www.demographic-research.org/special/1/.
