About HIV/AIDS Treatment In Resource Poor

Product Description The book focuses on HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment strategies in resource-poor settings. Contributors include HIV/AIDS researchers and public health administrators from the US, Africa, China, and Thailand. Several chapters, written by local health officials, take a close look at AIDS prevention and treatment in China at the community level. Other chapters cover issues of treatment scale-up, drug resistance, and mother-to-child transmission in Southern Africa and Thailand, and offer lessons learned for researchers in other developing countries. Overall the aim of this book is to bring some of the latest issues to the fore, and to foster exchange and collaboration between AIDS researchers in developing countries. This book grew out of an annual conference held in China and organized by the Harvard School of Public Health, and could possibly become the first volume of a series. From the Back Cover Thirty years into the AIDS epidemic, those working to eradicate the disease face both a plethora of challenges and a wealth of evolving solutions. Especially promising is that many of the world’s developing areas are emerging as vanguard forces in the fight. HIV/AIDS Treatment in Resource-Poor Countries illustrates in accessible detail where the field stands currently and where it is headed.   These inspiring pages contain studies in prevention and drug therapies from China, Southern Africa, and South Asia, demonstrating critical strategies made at the community level―of particular importance when fewer large-scale resources, as from NGOs, are readily available. Chapters examine major issues typifying the AIDS research and clinical picture today, such as compliance, pregnancy complications, and treatment scale-up. And the book’s conclusion discusses the most pressing question, “When will the world’s AIDS patients have access to effective antiretroviral therapy?” Included in the coverage:   Prevention of HIV infection in the absence of a vaccine. Prevention of mother-to-child transmission for HIV+ pregnant mothers in Yunnan Province, China. Antiretroviral treatment compliance in rural China. HIV/AIDS treatment and control in India and the Millennium Development Goals. HIV treatment scale-up in Africa: the impact of drug resistance. A practical way to improve access to essential medicines against major infectious diseases.   Researchers and clinicians in HIV/AIDS and global public health will find HIV/AIDS Treatment in Resource-Poor Countries an invaluable multilevel reference with which they can evaluate the effectiveness of their own work, which will spark ideas for future practice and policy, and which will encourage collaboration among the professional community.
