about

South Africa is the richest and most developed country on the African continent, yet it has failed to arrest the dramatic progression of its domestic AIDS epidemic. This book analyzes successive governments' management (and mismanagement) of the AIDS epidemic in South Africa. The book covers the years 1982-2005, using expert thinking regarding public policy making to identify gaps in the public sector's handling of the epidemic. The book highlights critical lessons for policy makers and other public health managers.
