AIDS in Africa by Nana Poku
Book DescriptionAcross Africa, HIV/AIDS is slowly killing millions of people in the prime of their lives, weakening state structures, deepening poverty and reversing the gains in life expectancy achieved over the past century. Although many who study the dynamics of Africa??AA's AIDS crisis accept that, to some degree, its entrenchment is a socially produced phenomenon, few have examined how the course and intensity of the epidemic have been affected by the continents ubiquitous poverty, the impact of the pervasive structural adjustment programmes or Africa??AA's marginalization in the process of globalization until now.This book explores the socio-economic context of Africa??AA's vulnerability to HIV/AIDS as well as assessing the politics of domestic and global response. Using primary and secondary data, it charts the power relations driving Africa??AA's HIV/AIDS epidemic, frustrating the possibility of alleviation and recovery as well as working to relegate the continent to a bleak and vulnerable future. In this sense, the book marks a radical departure by providing a comprehensive analysis of Africa??A A's vulnerability to AIDS and the challenges confronting policy makers as they seek to reverse its escalating prevalence on the continent. ??AAAIDS in Africa??AA is an immensely valuable introduction to the greatest pandemic facing the world today.
