AIDS in the World: Global Dimensions, Social Roots and Responses

Jafar Mahmud (Author)
Synopsis AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) has become one of the most important public health concerns in contemporary society. Recent data suggest that an estimated 36.1 million persons (adults and children) are living with HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) or AIDS (UNAIDS/WHO 2000). Approximately 21.8 million persons have died from AIDS-related illnesses by year-end 2000 (UNAIDS/WHO 2000). The multitude of tragedies arising from HIV and AIDS is a problem facing every country on earth. As a means of exploring how this problem is viewed in different settings around the world, this unique volume presents case studies of carefully selected countries representative of each region. Students, teachers, and researchers will be able to further their understanding of the subject as they make cross-cultural comparisons and discover how nations are responding, how the problem is changing, what kinds of research are being conducted, what sort of interventions are being enacted, and other details of the different ways in which this crisis affects various societies.
