Abstract [en]

This book presents a comprehensive history of Africa's best-known AIDS "success story," from the start of the epidemic in the early 1980s 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.
