Abstract

HIV/AIDS in South Africa : This definitive textbook covers all aspects of HIV / AIDS in southern Africa, from basic science to medicine, sociology, economics and politics. It has been written by a highly-respected team of southern African HIV experts and provides a thoroughly researched account of the epidemic in the region.


The Moral Economy of Aids in South Africa : Relatively few people have access to antiretroviral treatment in South Africa. The Government justifies this on grounds of affordability. Nicoli Nattrass argues that the government's view insulates AIDS policy from social discussion and efforts to fund large-scale intervention.
Learning from HIV and AIDS : Different professional and academic disciplines have addressed the HIV and AIDS pandemic from a variety of perspectives, using different analytical approaches. By bringing these together in one volume, Learning from HIV and AIDS provides a more complete picture of this multi-faceted disease, from the biological and social factors that facilitate HIV transmission to the powerful cultural and political forces that fuel the pandemic.
