The Caribbean AIDS Epidemic


The Caribbean AIDS Epidemic assesses the impact of the epidemic on the region, and does it in a manner that serves to counter the overtones of sensationalism that characterize much of the reporting on the disease to date, Its topics are wide-ranging - from an overview of the current situation in the Caribbean to commentary on regional policy development and formulation, from a discussion of discourses on AIDS through the region's music to a review of legal and ethical issues. It includes chapters on public health aspects such as the teaching of AIDS prevention and the treatment and care of those who contract the disease. The book will inform public health workers, medical practitioners, policy makers and the general public about HIV/AIDS in the Caribbean.
