HIV or AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa

Popular understanding of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Sub-Saharan Africa is riddled with contradiction and speculation. This is revealed in HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa which explores the various contexts in which debate about HIV/AIDS takes place and examines how the pandemic is perceived by scholars religious leaders and traditional healers among others – in communities in and around South Africa. Using a social theory lens the book focuses on not only the cultural and contextual practices but also the methodological and epistemological orientations around HIV/AIDS in education that shape community and individual interpretations of this disease.The book avoids a simplistic approach to the pandemic by exploring the complex and sometimes contradictory spaces in which HIV/AIDS discourses are negotiated and thus goes some way to present a more hermeneutic profile of the HIV/AIDS problem. HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa is as much about identity construction as it is about HIV/AIDS. The authors recognise the interrelatedness of sex sexuality identity and HIV/AIDS in the shaping of individual and collective identities and have thus gone beyond merely asking questions about what people know.
