Abstract


Despite the budding interest in the study of the problems of HIV positive women, it is surprising that very less empirical research has actually been conducted on this area of study, especially from the feminist perspectives. Previous research works have focused on the causes and the impact of HIV/AIDS. These studies focus on the economic causes of HIV AIDS and the psycho-social problems of HIV positive women. But none of them had fully addressed the role of non-governmental organizations in mitigating the problems of HIV Positive women in Ethiopia. Due to this research gap, it is particularly important to investigate the role of non-governmental organizations in mitigating the problems of HIV Positive women in Ethiopia. Therefore, the purpose of this case study is to discover the role of non-governmental organizations in mitigating the problems of HIV Positive women in Amhara Region of Ethiopia. By doing so the present research aimed to fill the gap between the previous studies and the current facts about the role of non-governmental organizations in mitigating the problems of HIV Positive women in Ethiopia.
