AIDS between science and politics by Peter Piot( )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Piot, founding executive director of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), recounts his experience as a clinician, scientist, and activist fighting the disease from its earliest manifestation to today. The AIDS pandemic was not only catastrophic to the health of millions worldwide but also fractured international relations, global access to new technologies, and public health policies in nations across the globe. As he struggled to get ahead of the disease, Piot found science does little good when it operates independently of politics and economics, and politics is worthless if it rejects scientific evidence and respect for human rights. Piot describes how the epidemic altered global attitudes toward sexuality, the character of the doctor-patient relationship, the influence of civil society in international relations, and traditional partisan divides. AIDS thrust health into national and international politics where, he argues, it rightly belongs. The global reaction to AIDS over the past decade is the positive result of this partnership, showing what can be achieved when science, politics, and policy converge on the ground. Yet it remains a fragile achievement, and Piot warns against complacency and the consequences of reduced investments. He refuses to accept a world in which high levels of HIV infection are the norm. Instead, he explains how to continue to reduce the incidence of the disease to minute levels through both prevention and treatment, until a vaccine is discovered

Leçon inaugurale prononcée le 7 janvier 2010 Chaire internationale Savoirs contre pauvreté (2009-2010) Trente années de riposte mondiale à l'épidémie du sida ont transformé la pratique de la santé publique et influencé les politiques de développement international. Longtemps directeur de l'ONUSIDA, Peter Piot en dresse le bilan. Il montre comment la lutte pour la prévention et pour le traitement des personnes porteuses du VIH a favorisé les approches multidisciplinaires et multisectorielles, l'engagement des communautés affectées, la promotion des droits de la personne, une évaluation rigoureuse des programmes, et une mobilisation mondiale des gouvernements et de la société civile. Ces approches peuvent être appliquées à d'autres problèmes de santé et de développement. La chaire internationale Savoirs contre pauvreté reçoit le soutien de l'Agence Française de Développement. Inaugural lecture given on January 7th 2010 International Chair in Knowledge against Poverty (2009-2010) The world's response to the AIDS epidemic over the last thirty years has transformed public health practices and influenced international development policies. Here Peter Piot gives an appraisal of his work as the Founding Executive Director of UNAIDs from 1994 to 2008. He shows how the fight for AIDS prevention and the treatment of HIV-positive patients encouraged and helped develop multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral approaches, the involvement of the communities affected by the disease, the promotion of individuals' rights, the stringent assessment of health programmes and the world-wide mobilisation of governments and civil society alike. Such approaches can be applied to help solve other health and development problems. The International Knowledge against Poverty Chair receives support from the French
