Public Health Aspects of HIV/AIDS in Low and Middle Income Countries

Epidemiology, Prevention, and Care

Edited by David D. Celentano and Chris Beyrer, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Over the last 25 years, HIV/AIDS has become the world's leading public health concern and an important human rights issue. More than 33 million people are currently infected—and the severest burden of the disease is on the nations with the fewest resources to counter it. Partnerships between high income and low and middle income countries, local and global struggles over prevention, care, and research priorities, and widespread community activism are shaping the public health picture on a global scale.

Public Health Aspects of HIV/AIDS in Low and Middle Income Countries brings a comprehensive world context to the pandemic, tracking epidemiological trends, correcting misperceptions, and examining the impact of local, government, and international responses in countries as disparate as Brazil, Nigeria, the Russian Federation, and India. A top panel of local and regional experts offers the latest data on infection rates, details on risk-reduction and care programs, analysis of evolving social attitudes regarding HIV, and prospects for new initiatives in prevention and treatment.

Key features of the book:

  • A region-by-region guide to the state of the epidemic and its impact on societies, comparing responses and success rates across affected countries.
  • Separate chapters reviewing epidemiology, treatment, prevention, and advocacy in specific countries and regions within Sub-Saharan Africa, South and Southeast Asia, Central Asia/Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
  • Global Fund, PEPFAR, and a host of other responses: coverage of the basic package and "scale-up" in HIV/AIDS care.
  • Overview of obstacles to access to care and prevention, and the rise of community groups and activist movements to meet these challenges.
  • Reports on the current status of antiretroviral therapies, vaccine research, and microbicide development.

Public Health Aspects of HIV/AIDS in Low- and Middle-Income Countries is the primer for researchers, practitioners, specialists, and students in HIV/AIDS, global health, and public health and policy. This mission-defining volume needs to be read by all those working to eradicate this devastating epidemic.
