Volume in the UN Millennium Development Library, on strategies for combatting the appalling suffering and destruction of lives and communities caused by the HIV/AIDS global pandemic. From the publisher's announcement: HIV/AIDS is a global catastrophe, threatening social and economic stability in the most affected areas, while spreading relentlessly into new regions. Over the past year, 3 million people died of AIDS, more than ever before and more than from any other infectious disease. Combating AIDS in the Developing World offers solutions to overcome obstacles to prevention, treatment and support for affected households, with a focus on achieving tangible results. Strategies include the intensification and revitalization of prevention efforts, a stronger focus on vulnerable populations, and the expansion of antiretroviral therapy to reach 75 per cent of those in within ten years. Simultaneous expansion of prevention and treatment, accompanied by sustained investment in health systems, will enable countries to reverse the spread of HIV by 2015.
