Phamokate - Grabbed and Buried

Social and cultural figures of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Botswana

By Georgia A. Rakelmann

Botswana is one of the countries with the highest HIV/AIDS rates in Africa. Years of concerted action regarding information and education campaigns are in place, and testing and treatment programs are offered in the public health system, but HIV/AIDS is still expanding. This book discusses the causes of expansion and describes the process of appropriation in different spheres of society, such as families, neighborhoods, and communities. Experts - including healers, health workers, and religious leaders - get a word in and the new forms of corporative actions and their actors are introduced. (Series: AIDS in Afrika - Vol. 4)
