Overview

HIV/AIDS management poses many different challenges around the world, and the therapies available in the West are often not economically feasible in developing countries. This new book is the first to address the myriad of clinical difficulties faced by health practitioners worldwide in managing HIV/AIDS. Edited by the same authorities responsible for the highly respected reference "The Medical Management of AIDS," with Associate Editors that include the President of the International AIDS Society and a preeminent opinion leader in the fight against AIDS in Africa, and authored by a "who's who" of current global experts on HIV and AIDS medicine, this visionary text presents all the practical, indispensable information that clinicians everywhere need to offer their patients the best possible care.

• Access reliable, up-to-the-minute guidance that addresses the realities of HIV/AIDS management in your geographical region, thanks to contributions from a global cast of renowned expert clinicians and researchers.
• Locate the clinically actionable information you need quickly with an organization that mirrors the current state of the AIDS epidemic and the different needs of Western vs. developing-world patients and clinicians.
• Diagnose AIDS manifestations confidently by comparing them to full-color clinical images.
• Review essential data quickly through numerous at-a-glance tables.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mark D. Goodman, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: Edited and authored by some of the most prestigious scientists and clinicians in the field, this is the most comprehensive compilation of HIV medicine imaginable. Its predecessor is The Medical Management of AIDS, first published in 1988 and updated six times.
Purpose: The editors note in the preface that they aim to extend the knowledge and advances of HIV/AIDS therapy globally, to the many millions still in need. The objective is world-changing and very worthy.
Audience: This resource is best suited for advanced residents and practitioners. The content is very advanced, with detailed epidemiological theory, molecular biology, immunology, and pharmacology. The authors are preeminent in the field.
Features: Every conceivable issue of HIV/AIDS is covered, from global epidemiology and origins of the virus to theories of length of infection in humans, vaccine updates, highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), and diseases associated with HIV infection. The editors place a special emphasis on prevention and treatment in resource-poor settings, which makes this book unique. These clinicians incorporate justice issues into the discussion, which is especially noteworthy. If there is a shortcoming in the book, I must confess I was a bit concerned that the editors credit Pfizer Global Health for an unrestricted gift.
Assessment: This is a must read for advanced clinicians and a valuable resource for all clinicians and those interested in the history and the future of the illness that has most impacted our generation worldwide.
From the Publisher
