Combining journalism with research to present an analysis that is broad in scope yet focused on the key issues, this publication is a multiauthored investigation into HIV reporting in South Africa. Ranging from in-depth quantitative and qualitative research documents to radio and television transcripts and candid interviews, this collection offers insight into the history and struggles of South African health politics and gives a voice to those whose voices are often not heard against the din of political controversy surrounding HIV. As it demonstrates the role the media has played in shaping the ideas about and the approach toward the virus, this discussion will be of particular interest to academics in both health and politics.
