About the book
The first issue of 2011 focuses on the ongoing battle against HIV/AIDS, now entering its fourth decade. Coinciding with the UN General Assembly High Level Meeting on AIDS in June 2011, the issue looks back at lessons learned from the earliest advocates that fought bravely against the virus and the stigma that came with it. It celebrates the strides that have been made towards accomplishing Millennium Development Goal 6: halting and reversing the spread of HIV/AIDS by 2015. It also highlights new challenges, including the global inequality in access to treatment, persistent stigma, and the need for HIV prevention that women can use and contral.
