Book Description

Winner of the Sociology of Health and Illness Book Prize 2008


Of approximately 37 million HIV positive people in the world, 24.7 million live in sub-Saharan Africa and about 5..5 million in South Africa. Despite its relatively powerful economy and infrastructure, South Africa has been dramatically affected by the HIV pandemic. Using narrative analysis of a three year interview study and textual analysis of political materials, HIV in South Africa examines the impact of HIV on people's everyday lives in the country. Examining the relationship between personal accounts of living with HIV and wider medical, political and religious discourses, the book also highlights the significance of class, race and gender on individuals' experiences.


These engaging stories of everyday lives provide an accessible way to connect with HIV as a health and development issue. Fascinating, challenging and constructive, this is an important contribution in an area of great social relevance.


The ebook is available free of charge to those with addresses on the United Nations Development Programme's Human Development Index of Medium and Low Rankings (see http://hdr.undp.org/hdr2006/pdfs/report/HDR_2006_Tables.pdf), who can apply to the following address: www.ebookstore.tandf.co.uk


Editorial Reviews

Review

'This book will make fascinating reading for everyone working in HIV prevention and for nurses with a general interest in HIV and international issues. We need more books such as this, which offer insight into all aspects of living with HIV. When collected with the skills shown here, their experiences can help us in developing the services here and overseas that people really need.' - Drew Payne, Nursing Standards
