Overview

In this collection of 11 articles, contributors respond to charges that African states are not responding adequately nor appropriately to the AIDS crisis. Showing that the primary problems with responses are limited resources, weak institutions, and a lack of power in the international system, contributors also describe ideological obstacles to effective policy-making, such as patriarchy, patterns of mobilization within the political culture, NGOs in Zimbabwe, international donors in Ghana, the economic, social and political drivers of Swaziland and South Africa, personalist regimes in Uganda, the effects of recent international policies, intellectual property as it pertains to AIDS pharmaceutical patents, and the possibility of consolidating response and preparing for the future.
