    schema:reviewBody """An accessible and compelling story of evidence and AIDS ... Beautifully written and argued."G︣ill Walt, Professor Emeritus of International Health Policy, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine" ""John Kinsman brings a health educator's and anthropologist's perspective to examining the AIDS policy process in Uganda. His unique insights make fascinating reading and suggest how important it is for policy advisers to understand the context, influences, and personalities of decision makers in addition to the scientific factors. This very readable book has much to teach those who advise on health policy issues."D︣r Richard Laing, Department of Essential Medicines and Pharmaceutical Policies, World Health Organization, Geneva Switzerland" ""This book is written with great sensibility to Ugandan culture. Using a political-economy approach, it shows that HIV/AIDS in Uganda is not purely a medical problem, but one that is anchored in multiple economic and structural contexts, globally, nationally and locally. The book will appeal to a wide audience and make an important contribution to the field of medical anthropology, especially as it pertains to international health policy, the social history of AIDS, and social epidemiology."P︣rofessor Charles B. Rwabukwali, Department of Sociology, Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda" "This book presents a comprehensive history of Africa's best-known AIDS "success story," from the start of the epidemic in the early 1980's up until 2005. It focuses on the various ways in which evidence and ideology have contributed to AIDS policy in Uganda, and it places the development of the country's innovative prevention and treatment strategies into the context of international, national, and local processes. Through this, John Kinsman shows how the country became an important influence in defining global AIDS control strategies."--Jacket." ;
