Rethinking AIDS Prevention: Cultural Approaches by Ralph Bolton

Focusing of applied issues in the prevention of AIDS, the authors illustrate the value of ethnographic methods in analyzing HIV transmission and the necessity of taking culture into account in teh design of prevention programs, particularly for marginalized populations. Challenging some of the most basic assumptions on HIV prevention, this collection is an essential resource for medical anthropologists, health educators and health psychologists.
