The New York Time security pictures

Despite the securitization of HIV/AIDS in the late 1990s onwards, media coverage that used this understanding was relatively sparse. Indeed, there were only twenty-nine stories in The New York Times that specifically discuss HIV/AIDS as a security issue and have photographs accompanying that story, regardless of whether they are front-page stories or not.

Accompanying those stories were ten photographs, four charts and two maps, with no images after 2003. The seven available photographs used with these stories – none of which appeared on the front page – are contained in the slideshow on this page. Their content is analyzed in Section 5(g) of the report; most striking is the way security is represented in terms of political leaders.
