A stimulating discussion and debate about the nature of community research and intervention
As news headlines report staggering numbers of people infected with HIV or AIDS across the globe and as stereotypes of typical AIDS patients become less and less specific to particular sexual orientations and ethnic backgrounds, the AIDS pandemic shows little sign of relenting.
This book articulates how the social and behavioral sciences can respond to HIV/AIDS. It is written for all who have a stake in AIDS research, including those involved in public health, community health education, urban planning, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and philosophy of science.
