Overview

It is estimated that 90% of those who are HIV positive are in employment. However, the significant body of literature into HIV/AIDS to date has primarily focused on the medical aspects of the disease and its implications for health/social policy. There has been little analysis of the employment implications of HIV/AIDS, and what does exist is essentially descriptive and usually limited to legal features of the employment relationship. This text provides a review of the theoretical and practical issues which bear upon organisational responses to HIV/AIDS. The authors set these responses in a historical and international context, before analysing recent research findings. In the first three chapters, issues are explored through an analysis which highlights international convergences and divergences. The remaining chapters draw on the authors' research to explore the "internal" dynamics of HIV/AIDS in the workplace.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Drawing on both original research and secondary sources, analyzes the formal and informal responses of employers and employees to the estimated 90% of people who are HIV positive in the western and on the job. They examine material from the US, Britain, and Europe to trace policy, practice, and behavior and how those are shaped by interests of power rooted in economic and sexual divisions. A resource for those with either academic or practical interest. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
