Paralleling the discovery of HIV and the rise of the AIDS pandemic a flock of naysayers has dedicated itself to replacing genuine knowledge with destructive misinformation and spreading from the fringe to the mainstream media and the think tank Now from the editor of the journal em AIDS and Behavior em comes a bold expose of the scientific and sociopolitical forces involved in this toxic evasion em Denying AIDS em traces the origins of AIDS dissidents disclaimers during the earliest days of the epidemic and delves into the psychology and politics of the current denial movement in its various incarnations br br Seth Kalichman focuses not on the difficult or doubting patient but on organized widespread forms of denial including the idea that HIV itself is a myth and HIV treatments are poison and the junk science faulty logic conspiracy theories and larger forces of homophobia and racism that fuel them The malignant results of AIDS denial can be seen in those individuals who refuse to be tested ignore their diagnoses or reject the treatments that could save their lives Instead of ignoring these currents asserts Kalichman science has a duty to counter them br br Among the topics covered br br br br Why AIDS denialism endures and why science must understand it br br br br Pioneer virus HIV researcher Peter Duesberg s role in AIDS denialism br br br br Flawed immunological virological and pharmacological pseudoscience studies that are central to texts of denialism br br br br The social conservative agenda and the politics of AIDS denial from the courts to the White House br br The impact of HIV misinformation on public health in South Africa br br br br Fighting fiction with reality anti denialism and the scientific community br br br br For anyone affected by interested in or working with researchers in HIV AIDS and public health professionals in general the insight and vision of em Denying AIDS em will inspire outrage discussion and ultimately action br br See http denyingaids blogspot com for more information, Three decades into the epidemic a great deal is known about HIV and its transmission more people are living with the disease and the virus is no longer seen as a death sentence But new people continue to be infected with HIV each year making prevention strategies that are medically effective and behaviorally engaging as urgent a priority as ever Biomedical Advances in HIV Prevention Social and Behavioral Perspectives assembles the latest improvements barriers to implementation and possibilities for and challenges to future progress Innovations such as pre exposure prophylaxis antiretroviral regimens for the high risk uninfected and treatment as prevention early use of ART to reduce infectiousness of new patients are examined as are current findings on ongoing prevention and treatment concerns, One of the most difficult challenges for today s mental health professional is helping clients who have human immune deficiency virus HIV infection or who have gone on to a diagnosis of acquired immune deficiency syndrome AIDS Understanding AIDS guides the reader through the complexities of the disease process the course of medical treatment and the psychological and social problems surrounding this dreaded illness, AIDS is kind of like life just speeded up JavonP heroinaddictwithAIDS Bronx NewYork Now I m not so much scared of dying as scared of living Mike D heroin addict with AIDS New Haven Connecticut Within little more than a decade AIDS has been tranformed from an untreatable rapidly fatal illness into a manageable chronic disease Most of this tranformation has occurred in the past five years accelerated by the advent of protease inhibitors and the proven benefits of combination antiretroviral therapy and prophylaxis against opportunistic infections For people living with HIV AIDS these developments have offered unprecedented hope and also new challenges As reflected in the quotes above some of the anxieties and anticipation of premature dying have been replaced by the uncertainties involved in living with a long term unpredictable illness The role of caregivers for people with HIV AIDS has also changed radically over this time Earlier in the epidemic we learned to accompany patients through illness to bear witness to advocate to address issues of death dying and reavement The arrival of more effective therapy has brought with it new capabi ties but also new complexities raising difficult problems concerning access to care adherence and toxicity
