Summary
"AIDS, Culture, and Africa examines such key issues as HIV transmission, condom use, sexual patterns, male circumcision, political factors, gender, poverty, and behavioral change. It features the research of those working in different countries in Africa, with different communities within those countries, and with different age, class, religious, and ethnic groups within those communities." "These original, previously unpublished essays serve as a call to arms for anthropologists to enter into the war against AIDS in Africa and address the need for a greater anthropological perspective in the increasingly medicalized and politicized study of the disease. As a whole, they pave the way for a deeper cultural understanding necessary to effectively reverse the catastrophic growth of HIV/AIDS on the continent."--Jacket
