It's Not Just About AIDS—The Underlying Agenda to Control HIV in Africa

(p.276) 15 Conclusion
AIDS, Culture, and Africa

Douglas A. Feldman

University Press of Florida

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the relation between HIV/AIDS and culture in Africa. The work of anthropologists on HIV/AIDS in Africa has been enormous and crucial since 1985 and it is likely that this trend will continue over the coming decades as well. This chapter discusses the political and economic factors that have been turning HIV prevention, care, and treatment in a different, and ultimately alarming, direction, and what might be done to change that.

Keywords:   HIV/AIDS, culture, Africa, anthropologists HIV prevention, political factors, economic factors
