This book addresses an issue of international, national and local importance-HIV/AIDS-an issue where the predominant attention is on the humanitarian and developmental catastrophe that it is accused of leading to, particularly in the developing world. The book, based on a first-of-its-kind study conducted in Goa (India), will be of great assistance to researchers as well as policy makers. It will assist policy makers in assessing the (in)adequacy of the measures taken by the government, NGOs and donors in combating the scourge of HIV/AIDS.

Review

The book is written keeping in mind the varied nature of its readership. While providing broad nuances of HIV/AIDS to the general reader, it provides extensive data-based information useful to researchers and deeper insights to government agencies and NGOs. (Oheraldo)

.... a meticulous blend... quite authentic, and irrespective of the philosophical or theoretical framework that a researcher stands by, the book has something to offer every individual interested in the topic...eye-opening and detailed chapters dealing with complex facets of AIDS and its implications...a commendable aspect of the book’s formatting is the way it has been presented to the readers by dividing the chapters into sub-chapters, making the discussion easy to grasp. (Dawn.com)

Savio P. Falleiro, probably the first author to give the micro-view of the families which carry the burden of survival amidst misery... the tabulated information has painstakingly brought out in such a way as to help general reader to understand the nature of problem under study.  What really gives an authenticity to the whole study is that the fact the author has carried out the 400 odd interviews on his own. (Stanley Coutinho)
