Description

This report on the global AIDS epidemic outlines the strategic role that governments must play in slowing the spread of HIV and mitigating the impact of AIDS in morbidity and mortality. Drawing on a wealth of knowledge that has accumulated in the 15 years since the virus that causes AIDS was first identified, the report highlights policies that are most likely to be effective in managing the epidemic. These include early actions to minimize the spread of the virus, aiming preventative interventions at high risk groups and evaluating measures that would assist households affected by AIDS according to the same standards applied to other health and poverty issues. This report should be a valuable resource for the public health community, policymakers, researchers and anyone with an interest in this devastating global health crisis.show more
