Credibility and validity: I believe the study is credible. The article has been peer reviewed and published within the last five years. Though the validity of the study can be questioned due to the limited number of people questioned and that were actively involved in senior centers in an urban area.For them to obtain more credible information they need to expand their sample population and involve individuals that have serious health problems and have been hospitalized.ReferenceKo, E., Nelson-Becker, H., Park, Y., & Shin, M.

Greater attention must be paid to young women, especially those who head households, in terms of treatment, prevention, and poverty alleviation.
Purpose - 6,338 men and 10,057 women were interviewed in this quantitative study to identify the link between gender and poverty and the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa.Objective - Identify the relationships among sex, gender, age, HIV status, and socioeconomic characteristics, focusing on heads and nonheads of households.Hypothesis - Results confirmed that age and gender are related to HIV infection in South Africa and that poverty is a social determinant for HIV infection across all age groups. However, sex is a determinant onlyamong the younger age groups. Young female heads of household are more likely to be poor and are more likely to be HIV positive. Results indicate that the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa is characterized by gender inequalities. Young women are more likely to be HIV infected, especially heads of households. Young women are also more likely to live in poverty.Credibility/Validity - The authors of this study are part of the Human Sciences Research Council in Cape Town, South Africa. The study has a clear objective although it cannot establish the directionality of a causative relationship between poverty and risk of HIV.Shisana, O., Rice, K., Zungu, N., & Zuma, K. (2010).
