About this book

In June 1981, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported the first evidence of a new disease that would later become known as Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). HIV and AIDS: Basic Elements and Priorities is a concise collection of all aspects of this disease, and is a source of readily available knowledge. All currently advocated preventive measures such as health education, condom use, safer sex practices, and treatment of sexually transmitted infections have been incorporated.

The key elements of this volume are: - up-to-date information on multiple dimensions of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, - discusses new anti–retroviral therapy / drugs, new drugs under clinical trials and preventive HIV vaccine, - covers current ethical, legal and social issues related to HIV/AIDS, - evaluates general public awareness about HIV/AIDS, - includes a global perspective and information about HIV/AIDS.

This volume is an excellent reference for science graduates and post graduates, medical students, research scholars and scientists across the world.
