Análisis de los programas de la agencia española de cooperación internacional para el desarrollo dirigidos a las mujeres en la lucha contra el vih/sida en mozambique (2005-2010)
Alvarez Quiñones, Johania
In this case study I attempt to analyze the factors that vitalize the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (Agencia Espanola de Cooperacion Internacional para el Desarollo – AECID) in Mozambique through and analysis of their programs such as VITA, which is directed specifically towards the development and betterment of health on the African continent. This case study is centered on discourse regarding development that begins in international politics around cooperation, based on the existence of an epidemic such as HIV which has highlighted the interaction between the biological and social sphere’s, the social and the individual and as an existential, cultural phenomenon; which validates it’s importance and need for study. I have chosen the tool of social investigation for this case study to understand the manner in which the AECID functions in Mozambique through its programs with a focus on gender, and specifically regarding HIV. The study looks to impart knowledge about the development of international cooperation within an organization as large and important as the AECID, whose projects enjoy great credibility in terms of execution and fulfillment of the needs of the population, as well as their national objectives concerning development and the overall priorities of the Agency.
