About this item
The HIV and AIDS epidemic continues to grow globally and an overwhelming majority of all infections in the twenty-first century have occurred in sub-Saharan Africa. Encouragingly, however, new infections are decreasing in this region. This important volume provides an overview of the evidence around HIV prevention interventions in sub-Saharan Africa.
Exploring contemporary biomedical, behavioural, structural and combination interventions, the book looks at the barriers to implementation as well as the successes, as well as how to monitor and evaluate practice. It then looks at the implications for tailoring interventions to specific key populations. Finally the book turns to the social, economic and political landscape, discussing financing and decision-making in HIV prevention amongst other issues.
This book is designed to help researchers and practitioners improve the effectiveness and efficiency of their efforts to prevent new HIV infections. It will be of use to all those working in HIV prevention, health promotion and education and communicable disease control in public health, medicine, nursing and medical sociology.
