HIV/AIDS and Society in South Africa Paperback / softback

Edited by Angela Ndinga-Muvumba, Robyn Pharoah


We have not yet unravelled how HIV/AIDS is changing South Africa's social fabric, despite the fact that over 5 million South Africans are living with the virus.

Do we know how HIV/AIDS may affect different sectors of society, possibly altering the course set for development?

Is it possible that the way in which the epidemic is being fought - through health and human rights activism - is adjusting our expectations of justice and equality?This book is a multidisciplinary overview of the discourse on HIV/AIDS and explores the concept of human security and the global development agenda.

Contributions are drawn from a diverse group of academics and activists who examine how the epidemic intersects with politics, society, culture and the economy in South Africa, addressing human rights, gender inequality, prisons, the military, the education sector, rural livelihoods and the orphan crisis.
