The devastation of the worldwide AIDS epidemic remains largely unchecked,
despite therapeutic advances and the mobilization of substantial public health
resources. Political indifference, racism, ethnocentrism, pharmaceutical corporate
greed, and homophobia are among the reasons critics cite to explain the inadequacy
of the response. Rethinking AIDS Prevention, by Edward
C. Green, PhD, is a critical examination of the world community’s approach
to the AIDS crisis, focusing on less-developed regions, where the problem
is most severe.
