Synopsis

In this revealing book Timothy Frasca uncovers the enormous cultural changes which have taken place throughout Latin America as a result of the disease. He brings issues such as sexuality, class, and religious beliefs into the open for the first time. Compelling interviews with activists, people with AIDS, government leaders, and church leaders-all show how the epidemic has developed. Frasca draws lessons from Latin America and the strong activist involvement that succeeded in increasing government resources to fight the disease. Tragic tales and gripping narratives are intermixed with the first set of comprehensive epidemic statistics from the continent, eagerly awaited by the World Health community.
