The Social Aspects of AIDS

Hilary Yvonne Homans, Peter Aggleton

Research output: Book/ReportBook


AIDS is not simply a concern for scientists, doctors and medical researchers, it has important social dimensions too. These include cultural, individual and media responses to HIV/AIDS, stigmatization and discrimination, perceptions of risk, and issues to do with counselling, care and health promotion. This series of books brings together work from many disciplines including psychology, sociology, cultural and media studies, anthropology, education and history. It also contains anthologies of papers given at recent conferences concerned with the social aspects of AIDS/HIV. Many of the titles offer insight into contemporary research priorities and identify some of the opportunities open to those involved in care and health promotion. The series will be of interest to those involved in education and social research as well as scientific and medical researchers who want to examine the social aspects of AIDS.
