PIRES, Patrícia Vitória  and  MEYER, Dagmar Elizabeth Estermann. Notions of coping with the feminization of AIDS in public policies. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.3, pp.95-113. ISSN 2238-152X.

The article integrates a documentary investigation linked to a multifocal and interinstitutional research, inscribed in the fields of Gender Studies, Cultural Studies and Collective Health, and in dialogue with Foucauldian theorization. It aims to problematize the notion of coping with the feminization of HIV / AIDS in the normative texts of the main policies in response to the grievance, which guide programmatic actions implemented in Brazil and in Rio Grande do Sul from 2007 to 2016. The documents were examined in the perspective of cultural analysis, through an intense exercise of multiplying meanings of the term coping with, over which it was possible to describe and discuss both processes of cultural signification that articulate multiple, varied and sometimes contradictory meanings to the term, as well as effects of this signification on ways of being a woman and living and coping with HIV / AIDS.

Keywords : collective health; public policy; gender; coping with AIDS; women living with HIV / AIDS.
