Global Health Governance and the Fight Against HIV/AIDS
Add to cart
US$ 115.00
The HIV/AIDS pandemic poses one of the most crucial policy challenges of our times. Successfully managing this policy field is vital for saving millions of lives, improving national and international security, promoting economic development and contributing to poverty reduction.
This collection systematically explores the global governance architecture surrounding HIV/AIDS.  Examining key actors in global health - WHO, UNAIDS, The Global Fund, WTO/TRIPS, the pharmeceutical industry and civil society, it focuses on national responses to the pandemic in Brazil and South Africa - the two key countries that have significantly contributed to and shaped the discourse on global health.   This book provides a theoretical understanding of the patterns of conflict and cooperation in the fight against HIV/AIDS and global health governance more broadly.
