This volume is a call to re-examine assumptions about what care is and how it be practised. Rather than another demand for radical reform, it makes the case for thinking clearly and critically. It urges people living with HIV to become full partners in designing and implementing their own care and for caregivers to accept them in this role.

Editorial Reviews

"HIV/AIDS is devastating the world, especially the vulnerable and the poor, who bear the brunt of humiliation, discrimination and stigma. Restoring Hope is a heartfelt plea from different faiths, and philosophical and ethical perspectives for decent care, which treats people living with HIV as collaborators. It is a plea, I pray we heed." -- Desmond Tutu, Nobel Laureate and Archbishop Emeritus, Cape Town, South Africa
