Overview

This groundbreaking book presents compelling data and research which reveals the shocking social and economic impact of HIV/AIDS on a global scale. Barnett and Whiteside—experts in the field for over 15 years—argue that it is vital to not only look at the disease in terms of prevention and treatment, but to also consider consequences which affect households, communities, companies, governments, and countries. This is a major contribution toward understanding the global public health crisis, as well as the relationship between poverty, inequality, and infectious diseases.
