Denying AIDS

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 AIDS and Behavior comes a bold exposé of the scientific and sociopolitical forces involved in this toxic evasion. Denying AIDS 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.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.Among the topics covered: Why AIDS denialism endures, and why science must understand it.Pioneer virus HIV researcher Peter Duesberg’s role in AIDS denialism.Flawed immunological, virological, and pharmacological pseudoscience studies that are central to texts of denialism.The social conservative agenda and the politics of AIDS denial, from the courts to the White House.The impact of HIV misinformation on public health in South Africa.Fighting fiction with reality: anti-denialism and the scientific community.For anyone affected by, interested in, or working with researchers in HIV/AIDS, and public health professionals in general, the insight and vision of Denying AIDS will inspire outrage, discussion, and ultimately action.See http://denyingaids.blogspot.com/ for more information.

The Stigma of People Living with HIV/AIDS: A ca...
49,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The results are four-fold: First, the community of Malakal lack adequate knowledge of HIV/AIDS and such low knowledge of the disease has resulted in misconceptions towards persons living with it. Secondly, the PLWHA have developed negative attitudes in their relationships with the community, by denying the reality of living with the disease. Thirdly, the community perceives the PLWHA as different from themselves, people from whom they should distance themselves. Fourthly, there is great fear of HIV/AIDS which hinders the common person from discussing issues related to HIV/AIDS.The findings of this study have shown that to succeed in combating HIV/AIDS one has to tackle the challenges posed by the stigma associated with the epidemic, otherwise the efforts to provide care, treatment and prevention will not have an impact and ultimately impede efforts to defeat HIV/AIDS in the world.

A Christian Response to Street Children Phenomenon
79,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Street children are a fairly recent phenomenon in Zimbabwe, becoming a feature of its society after independence in 1980. As they struggle for daily survival, street children also face an early loss of childhood and are exposed to the multi-dangers of abuse, drugs, disease, HIV/AIDS, sexual violence by pedophiles, and other street children. The answer to their problem lies, to a large extent, with the Christian community since its special relationship with God reflects the mandate and passion which lie beneath its call and vision. It is against this background and interest in children that the writer has determined to offer a contribution to child welfare issues in Zimbabwe. Considering the potential which children have to excel in life, it may be argued that denying street children rights available to other children creates a two-fold problem. Firstly, the child lives an unfulfilled life, and secondly the community buries someone who never received an opportunity to exercise his or her full potential. In light of this, it can be strongly contended that street children are part of the society's most valuable commodity and yet they are abandoned to face their own fate.
