Many conferences have been held on HIV and AIDS and numerous deliberative rhetorical transactions have taken place in different political arenas. This volume, emanating from a Symposium in 2007. Offer chapters that deal with leadership of HIV and AIDS in Africa from 1998 to the present day.
This collection of essays provides a provocative critique of leadership on HIV/AIDS in Africa from the 1980s to the present. It examines the rhetoric on HIV/AIDS, which has influenced culture and behaviour, service delivery, policy, the design of national interventions and the varied success of different countries in containing the pandemic.
