Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis takes an in-depth look at specific behaviors that are putting Maasai women at risk for HIV/AIDS in Kenya. Methods used include in-depth interviews, focus group discussion, demographic data collection, and nutritional anthropometric measurements. The research took place June September 2004. Analysis reveals a strong connection between poverty and risk for HIV/AIDS in the Maasai community. There is also the potential for "learned helplessness" that some young women are displaying due to the current HIV/AIDS intervention and awareness programs. The thesis considers how culturally appropriate interventions may be more effective than current education programs at lowering the rate of HIV/AIDS in the Maasai community.
