    Across 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 Africas 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 Africas marginalization in the process of globalization until now. This book explores the socio-economic context of Africas 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 Africas 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 Africas vulnerability to AIDS and the challenges confronting policy makers as they seek to reverse its escalating prevalence on the continent. AIDS in Africa is an immensely valuable introduction to the greatest pandemic facing the world today.

    Eighteen articles which were first presented at the 2nd European Conference on the Methods and Results of Social and Behavioral Research on AIDS, January, 1998. The papers treat four main areas: the behavioral aspects of living with AIDS, the changes in sexual behavior as it effects transmission rates, user and policy perspectives on illegal drug use, and overview accounts of the spread of AIDS. Some examples of particular discussions include attitudinal factors and adherence to protease inhibitor combination therapy, socio-economic status and HIV prevalence among gay men in Germany, drug risk behavior and HIV infection in European prisons, and the implications of modelling network structures for the spread and prevention of HIV.
