Inhaltsangabe: AIDS in the World charts a course into the future based on clear analysis of the global pandemic and response, lessons learned from the first decade, and understanding of the scientific and social dimensions of the HIV/AIDS challenge.

Praise for the first volume: "No one can remain illiterate about HIV/AIDS ? a new phenomenon in our time. This authoritative compilation of valuable information and understandable concepts is an invaluable source for non-spcecialists and specialists alike." ? Jonas Salk, M.D.
"A comprehensive and masterful approach to the AIDS pandemic, a major challenge to our civilization." ? Luc Montagnier, Institut Pasteur, France
"AIDS in the World is an extraordinarily useful resource for anyone concerned about the HIV pandemic and its ramifications around the globe. The projections of the future scope of AIDS and HIV are of such magnitude that extensive planning is urgently needed; this volume is invaluable in facing this daunting task." ? June E. Osborn, M.D., University of Michigan
"This important new book puts it finger on the pulse of the world, ailing with HIV and AIDS, and the prognosis looks grim ? only occasionally does an effective heartbeat get through to show the patient is making any response. While it will not be easy toi pull the patient round, this important initial diagnostic assessment should allow policy makers to get on with the business of planning a sustained approach to treatment ? based on a realistic assessment of the problem and a vision of what could be achieved." ? Anthony J. Pinching, St. Bartholomew's Hospital, England
"AIDS in the World is a call to arms in the fight against AIDS. Its honest analysis presents a compelling case for a massive worldwide effort to end the pandemic. But that effort will only be successful if it deals directly with issues of human rights, equity between the sexes, and the absolute necessity for rich nations to help poor ones. AIDS in the World is a must read for those concerned about the future of the global community." ?Mervyn F. Silverman, M.D., President, American Foundation for AIDS Research
"AIDS in the World frames the context of the epidemic in such a way to remind all of us how both fascinatingly complex and disarmingly simple the issues of HIV prevention and AIDS care are. It challenges us to find the political will to work together on a global basis to save human lives and to serve justice. It shouldremind the jaded why they joined the fight against AIDS and motivate those who have not yet found the courage or confidence to act." ?Ron Rowell, Executive Director, National Native American AIDS Prevention Center
