Nicolas Cathcart, Nancy Luke Response One of the main ways both government and non-governmental organizations have fought the spread of AIDS is through prevention methods, such as making condoms available and teaching people how to practice safe sex. While those techniques have proven successful in certain regions, much of sub-Saharan Africa poses unique challenges that often go beyond those methods. The reason behind this, as Nancy Luke illustrates, is that sex is something involving multiple individuals. Therefore, simply providing the tools to having safe sex is not going to be effective when dealing with relationships involving power disparities. This is particularly highlighted by the “sugar daddy” relationships that exist in nations like Kenya, where her study was completed. The data gathered there provides key examples for how these types of relationships shape the health of those who participate in them and ways that it can be stopped.
