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.
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)
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)
