HIV and AIDS in Africa

HIV and AIDS in AfricaHIV and AIDS in Africa: Christian Reflection, Public Health, Social Transformation, edited by Jacquineau Azetsop, S.J. (Maryknoll, NY: Orbis Books, 2016), xxiii + 424 pages. ISBN: 978-1-62698-200-0.

A comprehensive look at the HIV and AIDS pandemic in Africa, this important volume features contributions from noted experts from across the continent and also includes contributions from several prominent American scholars. HIV and AIDS both continue to spread in Africa and in some regions have become a threat to the very survival of nations. This book offers a number of perspectives on the crisis—theological, sociological, public health, and more. It is a valuable resource for social analysis and theological reflection from an African perspective. Emmanuel Katongole (University of Notre Dame) has described it as “a must-have and a must-read by every scholar, priest, social worker, pastoral agent, and anyone seeking to understand Africa’s journey of pain and hope, and the faith that sustains that journey.” For Mary N. Getui (Catholic University of Eastern Africa, former chairperson of National AIDS Control Council, Kenya), the book is a “comprehensive, interdisciplinary, rich and mind-jostling…beacon of hope as well as a wakeup call that challenges individuals and institutions within and outside Africa concerning HIV and AIDS on the continent.”
