AIDS in the Twenty-First Century
Tony Barnett Alan Whiteside
| Price: $ 19.95
In this clearly written and informative book, Barnett and Whiteside--experts in the field for over 15 years--argue that it is vital to not only look at AIDS in terms of prevention and treatment, but to also consider consequences which affect households, communities, companies, governments, and countries. This is a major contribution toward understanding the global public health crisis, as well as the relationship between poverty, inequality, and infectious diseases.
