The Encyclopedia of AIDS covers all major aspects of the first 15 years of the AIDS epidemic, including the breakthroughs in treatment announced at the International AIDS Conference in July 1996. The encyclopedia provides extensive coverage of major topics in eight areas: basic science and epidemiology; transmission and prevention; pathology and treatment; impacted populations; policy and law; politics and activism; culture and society; and the global epidemic.
