Routledge (July 2007)
This is the first book to offer an intelligent and critical analysis of the global governance of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. It interrogates the role of this international system and provides a comparative regional analysis looking at the global debate from a holistic perspective. Hakan Seckinelgin addresses a range of key issues, including: the emergence of a global disease; its history and background; international governance; and medicalisation.
The geographical focus is Sub-Saharan Africa since the region has been at the forefront of these global interventions. It provides an innovative way for discussing the role of people living in the context of the disease in relation to policy frameworks.
A substantial contribution to the understanding of the problems in HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa, this book will be invaluable to students and researchers of health, international politics and development.
