The AIDS Epidemic: An Overview
This Overview section of the Encyclopedia of AIDS is designed to introduce readers to the broad sweep of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and, in particular, to the manner in which this volume covers the epidemic's complex social, political, cultural, and scientific dimensions. While the specific entries in the body of the book are organized alphabetically, the Overview enables the reader to trace through particular themes and areas of interest and to see how different entries interrelate.
The Overview encompasses the eight domains covered by the Encyclopedia of AIDS:
The introduction to each domain contains a brief synopsis, giving readers unfamiliar with HIV/AIDS the opportunity to obtain a broad introduction to the key points of the epidemic by reading all the introductions sequentially. Each domain also includes a "Perspectives on the AIDS Epidemic" essay that highlights a broad topic of particular importance for that domain.
