About this book

This volume is a call to re-examine assumptions about what care is and how it be practised. Rather than another demand for radical reform, it makes the case for thinking clearly and critically. It urges people living with HIV to become full partners in designing and implementing their own care and for caregivers to accept them in this role.

Reviews

'HIV/AIDS is devastating the world, especially the vulnerable and the poor, who bear the brunt of humiliation, discrimination and stigma. Restoring Hope is a heartfelt plea from different faiths, and philosophical and ethical perspectives for decent care, which treats people living with HIV as collaborators. It is a plea, I pray we heed.'

- Desmond Tutu, Nobel Laureate and Archbishop Emeritus, Cape Town, South Africa

'This collection of 17 essays is a thoughtful discourse that beautifully integrates philosophical, socio-political, and spiritual perspectives.' - Susan Bauer-Wu, NightingaleDeclaration.net

'This is a book for visionaries,for realists, for strategists and for carers...whatever your starting point, read this book and allow it to change your perceptions and your practice.' - HIV Medicine

'This book fills a void in the literature in that it is perhaps the first book to provide a rationale for decent care that extends across most of the world's major belief systems.' - Central European Journal of Public Health
