Doing HIV Medicine in Southern Africa. What does the Epidemic Teach Us?
Despite education and prevention campaigns, the HIV epidemic in southern Africa continues to spread. What do poverty, lack of leadership, stigma and culture mean in the context of personal choice? What can be done to assist the uninfected to make the right decisions? This article briefly reviews these ethical issues in HIV practice and suggests several solutions.
