Living with the AIDS Virus: The Epidemic and the Response in India

"Living with the AIDS Virus presents a ... detailed analysis of the effort to control AIDS in India, with contributions from those who have been involved with the campaign over several years. A contextual sensitivity and an attempt to identify the lacunae in existing approaches are revealed in most of the chapters, especially those on the government's response, the role of non-governmental organisations, community responses in Mumbai City, and interventions with gay men. ... [The book provides] food for thought for policy-makers, researchers and programme managers [and] should interest the general reader."
