Overview

The HIV/AIDS epidemic is showing scant signs of slowing down
its political impact varies greatly and is difficult to map. Providing an incisive study of the global plague that threatens existing social, economic and human interrelations, this innovative volume assesses how HIV/AIDS affects governance and, conversely, how governance affects the course of the epidemic.

The political impact of HIV/AIDS varies greatly and is difficult to map. States depend on how governments choose to manage the political implications of HIV and AIDS, both those stemming from the erosions of its own capacity as well as those that originate from their changing relationship on a national and international level.

Across the developing world, HIV/AIDS is slowly killing adults in their most productive years, hollowing out state structures, deepening poverty and raising profound questions that touch on the organization of all aspects of social, economic and political life. With the epidemic showing scant signs of slowing down, this innovative volume assesses how HIV/AIDS affects governance and, conversely, how governance affects the course of the epidemic.

In particular, the volume:

• employs a compelling analytical and polemic framework for mapping the multiple dynamic mechanisms of governance and HIV/AIDS
• brings together contributions from renowned international scholars from a variety of disciplines
• draws on comprehensive and detailed perspectives of the roles of actors, institutions and structures
• provides an incisive study of a global plague which threatens existing social, economic and human interrelations.
