Global Institutions and the HIV/AIDS Epidemic by Franklyn Lisk
Book DescriptionWritten by a leading expert in the field, this book provides a clear and incisive analysis of the different perspectives of the global response to HIV/AIDS, and the role of the different global institutions involved. The text highlights HIV/AIDS as an exceptional global epidemic in terms of the severity of its impact as a humanitarian tragedy of unprecedented proportion, its multi-dimensional characteristics, and its continuous evolution over more than two decades. The careful analysis in this volume critically reviews key issues in the global response, including: * HIV/AIDS as a development challenge * North-South power relationships and tensions * international and regional partnerships between donor governments and recipient countries * governance of global institutions and impact on the capacity of developing countries to respond effectively to the epidemic * prevention versus treatment as options in HIV/AIDS services * how to make the money work in support of effective AIDS financing. Providing a comprehensive but easy to read and compact overview of history, trends and impacts of HIV/AIDS and the global efforts to respond effectively this book is essential reading for all students of international relations, health studies and international organizations.
