The right to health is fundamental to the human condition, yet achieving sexual health remains an elusive goal. Rates of sexually transmitted infections continue to climb across the world, and with uneven access to effective HIV prevention methods. Anthropologically-informed public health analyses demonstrate the ways in which social and structural factors serve to sustain and strengthen disparities of sexual health opportunity and outcome in the context of globalization.
