(p.1) Introduction
AIDS Between Science and Politics

Peter Piot

, Laurence Garey
Columbia University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a brief overview of the book, which is based on ten lectures in the “Knowledge against Poverty” series at the Collège de France in Paris from 2009 to 2010. The book represents the English translation of that original book, but also much more. It has been completely updated and revised to reflect the latest literature and important new topics have been added to bring the critical subject of HIV/AIDS up to date. The remainder of the chapter discusses the global impact of the AIDS pandemic, public perception of AIDS, the AIDS movement, and prospects for the end of AIDS.

Keywords:   HIV, AIDS pandemic, AIDS movement, AIDS treatment, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
