In this community-based learning course students will partner with a St. Louis AIDS service organization (ASO) or sexual health agency to explore how the interrelationships among gender, class, race/ethnicity, and sexual identity shape sexual health decisions, outcomes, and access to services. Students will also examine the complex relationship between men's and women's life goals and constraints, on the one hand, and the public health management of sexual health, on the other. In collaboration with their community partner and its clients, students will develop a project that addresses an identified need of the organization and the community it serves. Course readings will draw from the fields of anthropology, public health, feminist studies, and policy-making. The prerequisite for the course is L48 4134 (The AIDS Epidemic) or permission from the instructor, which will be determined based on past student's experience in the fields of medical anthropology or sexual/reproductive health.
