Alan Whiteside & Clem Sunter
AIDS The Challenge for South Africa is an accessible book which discusses the possible origins of HIV/AIDS, but more importantly it serves to highlight the options we have in combating the spread of this epidemic.
Whiteside and Sunter propose an approach to overcome the epidemic before it is too late.
A comprehensive view of the current HIV/AIDS situation in the world and Africa is also included. In addition to this is specific reference to South Africa and the possible demographic, economic and social consequences for our society over the next two decades if nothing is done to halt the onslaught of this epidemic.
The message of the book is that we can beat HIV/AIDS, but we must all, in our own way, take appropriate action now!
