Has AIDS policy been left in the hands of technocrats? Nicoli Nattrass, in her 224-page book, argues that 'AIDS policy is too important to be left in the hands of technocrats'. As a Professor of Economics and Director of the Centre for Social Science Research at the University of Cape Town, she provides an economic analysis to inform social debate about AIDS policy in South Africa. In particular, Nattrass focuses on and discusses past and current government actions with respect to the provision of antiretroviral therapy (ART), thereby stimulating further questions and debate for both economists and non-economists.
