Lisk Global Institutions and the HIV/AIDS Epidemic

Written by a leading expert in the field, this book provides a clear and incisive analysis of the different perspectives of the global response to HIV/AIDS, and the role of the different global institutions involved. The text highlights HIV/AIDS as an exceptional global epidemic in terms of the severity of its impact as a humanitarian tragedy of unprecedented proportion, its multi-dimensional characteristics, and its continuous evolution over more than two decades.

The careful analysis in this volume critically reviews key issues in the global response, including:

HIV/AIDS as a development challenge

North-South power relationships and tensions

international and regional partnerships between donor governments and recipient countries

governance of global institutions and impact on the capacity of developing countries to respond effectively to the epidemic

prevention versus treatment as options in HIV/AIDS services

how to make the money work in support of effective AIDS financing.

Providing a comprehensive but easy to read and compact overview of history, trends and impacts of HIV/AIDS and the global efforts to respond effectively this book is essential reading for all students of international relations, health studies and international organizations.
