Description


HIV and AIDS in Africa: Beyond Epidemiology is a collectionthat seeks to further our understanding of AIDS by shifting thepredominant understandings generated by biomedical andepidemiological research.

  • Brings together international contributors---including oftenoverlooked African scholars and activists---from across the socialsciences to examine HIV and AIDS from angles previouslyunexplored.
  • By presenting on-the-ground evidence and ethnographic cases, emphasizes that HIV transmission in sub-Saharan Africa is a complexand regionally specific phenomenon rooted in local economies, deepening poverty, migration, gender, war, global economies, andcultural politics.
  • Recognizes that AIDS in Africa cannot be stemmed until social, gender, and economic inequities are addressed in meaningfulways.
