Overview

"Moving beyond a simple biomedical model, this book compels us to view AIDS in women in a wholly new way, as an inescapable even in lives devalued by the forces of poverty, racism and sexism. This extraordinary multidisciplinary effort should serve as the guidebook for those who want to understand how AIDS has become a leading killer of young women in a mere decade." — Deborah Cotton, M.D. This second edition of the groundbreaking Women, Poverty and AIDS reviews the massive epidemic sweeping Sub-Saharan Africa and many other parts of the Third World. As Dr. Joia Mukherjee reveals, the unfolding tragedy is a double one: drugs could be saving lives but are made unavailable while millions die.
