About this title


This collection of essays provides a provocative critique of leadership on HIV/AIDS in Africa from the 1980s to the present. The book examines the rhetoric on HIV/AIDS which has influenced culture and behavior, service delivery, policy, the design of national interventions, and the varied success of different countries in containing the pandemic. African scholars put into context a host of public and scholarly disputes ranging from AIDS exceptionalism and Thabo Mbeki's 'denialism,' to the racist debates on 'African promiscuity' and the recent revival of assertions that homosexuality is not an 'African' behavior. The book refers to the records of governments in a wide range of African countries, with case studies drawing on the rhetoric of governments and the nature of government leadership in South Africa, The Gambia, Morocco, Zambia, and Ethiopia, as well as the African Union's declarations on HIV/AIDS. What emerges is that the rhetoric is diverse, occasionally logical, and effective in terms of informing systemic HIV/AIDS interventions that improve the welfare of people, and sometimes it is contradictory to the point of absurdity. *** "...the editors have put together a book that wil intrigue many readers... They address common myths, such as the belief that HIV/AIDS is part of a Western plot to destroy Africans. Credit is also given where it is due, as in the case of Morocco, where the government instituted initiatives at local, regional, and national levels as early as 1986 and now has a prevalence of HIV infection of 0.1 percent. Recommended." C. Apt., South Carolina State University, Choice, February 2013, Vol. 50, No. 6.
