As a postgraduate student studying HIV/Aids I expected that this book would be revealing and enlightening. Not so. The book is not coherant and it continally skips back and forth from country to country, to advantages and disadvantages of policies, that in the end I just gave up and did an internet search for the information I needed on AIDs in Latin America.
