  • "HIV has visited upon the world a huge tragedy; but ironically it has also inspired human triumph. Millions have succumbed to it and yet it has driven the world towards a better health care system for all. Ultimately, HIV has helped reaffirm our humanity, in what we say, how we serve, in how we love and care for our affected fellow human beings. This phenomenon of being concerned and caring has been enhanced by the dedicated service of health workers, researchers, activists, policymakers and social movements without whom the HIV narrative would be incomplete. In this edition, Busani Ngcaweni brings together an impressive list of people who have been at the forefront of this 35-year struggle. It is a timely, yet overdue, resource which will prove invaluable to students, health workers, academics and policymakers for many years to come."--Cyril Ramaphosa is Deputy President of South Africa and Chair of the South African National AIDS Council
  • "The aim of this book is to better understand the phenomenon of HIV in a country that has faced the fullest might of the disease and yet, after first faltering, has made more progress than any other country in the world in its response to HIV. It aims to reflect the complexity of this narrative and the range of widely differing insights by featuring what is likely the largest number of contributors in a single publication on the subject in South Africa, as well as a full spectrum of specialised areas, ranging from high-end science to personal reflections."--
