28: Stories of AIDS in Africa

JAMA. 2008;300(5):591-592. doi:10.1001/jama.300.5.591

28: Stories of AIDS in Africa is a remarkable collection of stories by journalist Stephanie Nolan. In this book, Nolan offers a candid glimpse into the life of 28 individuals directly affected by AIDS in Africa—1 for every 1 million estimated to be infected in Africa today. These 28 individuals share tales of courage, despair, and hope while illustrating the utter devastation brought about by AIDS. Through these poignant narratives, Nolan allows readers to identify with the uniquely human aspect of this pandemic in a way rarely possible.
