Reviews

'This book provides a wealth of fine grained detail about the unfolding HIV/AIDS epidemic and the expanding interventions in Sub-Saharan Africa, and particularly in eastern and southern Africa. Most HIV prevention programmes in Africa have failed because biomedically orientated actors have failed to adequately address the social, cultural, economic and political context of HIV/AIDS and human sexuality, disease impacts and interventions. This book goes some way to addressing that gap and provides new and relevant information for health planners, administrators, students and researchers, thus representing a major achievement by the ten authors and two editors.' - Anne Scott, University of Canterbury, New Zealand

'This book can inform undergraduate and graduate students of public health, and epidemiology, clinical medicine, African studies, medical anthropology and medical sociology, as well as health planners, health administrators, and NGO staff. Thus it may contribute to accelerating the current decline in HIV incidence and AIDS mortality and promote adequate and sustainable care for the still growing number of patients, orphans, and other affected people.' - Ahmed Ali, Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia
