AIDS and HIV-Related Diseases: An Educational Guide for Professionals and the Public is a compelling exploration of how disease affects and "devalues" populations in our society. Mr. Powell, and expert in HIV and AIDS awareness and related public health policy, presents this important resource as a viable way to explain the "system" of disease progression and control and the complicated terms and protocols that dictate AIDS and HIV treatment, education, and social policy. With extensive appendixes and illustrative models, this fundamental handbook demystifies complicated medical language, discusses new or alternative treatments, and provides insight and direction for HIV-prevention education and counseling infected clients.
