Summary
"The Invisible Cure will change the way we think about AIDS, a disease without precedent; and it will change the way we think about Africa and Africans, whose insight, wisdom, and care for the stranger will be as crucial as money and medical know-how if they are to overcome this terrible health crisis."--Jacket
Summary
A provocative analysis of the AIDS epidemic in Africa looks at the social, economic, and political factors that have caused and exacerbated the situation; its impact on gender relations and the spread of HIV; the devastating effects of the disease on entire countries; and possible solutions to the crisis. 30,000 first printing
