About this book

This book examines the global HIV/AIDS pandemic from a multidisciplinary perspective, analyzing its economic impact, the reasons behind the political response to the pandemic, international laws relating to public health and patents and mechanisms for financing global and national responses. The authors paint a global picture of the HIV/AIDS pandemic one issue, one country and one region at a time and show why prevention, treatment and human rights protection must each form part of a comprehensive HIV/AIDS strategy. The book analyzes the successes and failures of national governments, international organizations and the private sector in fighting the HIV/AIDS pandemic and recommends changes to our international economic, financial, legal and political institutions. This book highlights the lessons the world has to learn from our experience with HIV/AIDS in order to improve the way we address global diseases.

From the reviews: “In the book Global Lessons from the AIDS Pandemic, Bradly Condon and Tapen Sinha provide an overview of the global AIDS epidemic. … It should be informative to those wanting an overview of the fight against HIV/AIDS … . The book could also make an excellent undergraduate or masters textbook on the political economy of global diseases … . I enjoyed reading the book and would recommend it to those wanting to learn more about global HIV/AIDS financing.” (Rebecca L. Thornton, Journal of Economic Literature, Vol. XLVII, December, 2009)
