Description A ROAD LESS TRAVELLED: Boundaries in Dr J. V. Larsen's Career. A young mother to be waits to be examined in Dr Larsen's consulting room.Over the past decade my father saw increasing incidence of HIV/AIDS among young women in his clinics. The occurance of the disease is measured by the incidence among pregnant women. By the late 1990s KwaZulu Natal province had one of the highest HIV infection rates in the world. Although there have been reports of the incidence of the disease abating, the reality on the ground has been different. Even among people well informed about the disease, behaviour change in terms of sexual practices has been slow in coming. The advent of the disease for me was marked by my father starting to wear large goggle-like glasses. My father once cut himself while operating on an HIV positive woman and had to go on a course of antiretrovirals himself. He was so sick he was unable to finish the course but seems to have suffered no ill effects.. Photo: David Larsen/Afric
