Introduction by Paul Farmer
Preface by Zackie Achmat

This book shatters ten common myths about HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention —such as “AIDS is an African problem,” “treatment in developing countries is not technically feasible,” and the myth of “limited resources”—while calling for an international movement to fight the disease. Carefully documented and thoughtfully written, Global AIDS is invaluable for anyone wishing to understand the roots of the AIDS crisis in poor countries. The authors also address the media’s role in “myth making,” the real promise of vaccine research, and the impact of activism on patenting laws.
