This updated and authoritative review of Africa's experience will be helpful to health care providers, researchers, and policy planners, not only in Africa but throughout the world, since Africa has had higher rates of infection and more experience with AIDS than other regions.


Written by leading experts in the field, this comprehensive reference book will be of interest to a wide audience of health care providers, researchers, and policy-makers. The authors have succeeded admirably in making technical material highly accessible. - Jan Bongaarts
