Editorial Reviews

`This is a highly recommended book for all academic and medical libraries. it should be read by anyone who is administering any HIV prevention program.' AIDS Book Review Journal `This volume provides a practical, accessible compendium of HIV prevention strategies implemented in developing countries, including accounts of the difficulties encountered and the degree of success achieved. The book also offers specific tools and tangible hope for reducing the impact of the epidemic in regions where combination therapies are inaccessible.' American Journal of Public Health, 89:12 (1999) `Preventing HIV in Developing Countries provides an up-to-date compendium of projects designed to reduce HIV transmission among a variety of high-risk populations in several countries. Any progress in making a serious dent in the HIV crisis that disproportionally affects the developing world is in part dependent on sharing the lessons learned. This volume provides an excellent foundation. It is written in a clear style, which makes it accessible to a variety of audiences. It is not a how-to-do-it manual, but provides an important shortcut to essential information that s otherwise difficult to obtain.' Contemporary Psychology APA Review of Books, 46:5 (2001)
