It is refreshing to read AIDS and the Ecology of Poverty by Eileen Stillwaggon, as it tackles the topic of HIV / AIDS from a perspective that is not altogether forgotten but is not as prevalent as it should be. The 260 page book, extremely relevant for policy makers, researchers, students and those working in the field of HIV / AIDS, discusses AIDS beyond the behavioural perspective. What makes this book relevant is that Stillwaggon reminds us that there is more than the behavioural perspective; she shows us that our fixation on the behavioural has led us to policies that are not as effective as we hoped they would be.
