Editorial Reviews

"This important new book puts it finger on the pulse of the world, ailing with HIV and AIDS, and the prognosis looks grim--only occasionally does an effective heartbeat get through to show the patient is making any response. While it will not be easy to pull the patient round, this importantinitial diagnostic assessment should allow policy makers to get on with the business of planning a sustained approach to treatment--based on a realistic assessment of the problem and a vision of what could be achieved."--Anthony J. Pinching, St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London
