Summary
In the decade since the first AIDS cases were reported, the disease has spread rapidly around the world. Every country has had to devise policies suited to its own political, economic, and cultural conditions. The differences among their approaches are striking. This volume--the first comprehensive, international comparison of responses to AIDS in the industrialized democracies--is a unique guide to the world's most urgent public health crisis. Sixteen leading experts in public health, social science, government, and public policy from the United States, Canada, Germany, Australia, Spain, Britain, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, and Japan candidly analyze the responses of their own nations. They look critically at the tragic statistics of AIDS incidence; the circumstances of AIDS's first appearance; public health traditions of mandatory screening, contact tracing, and quarantine; attitudes toward drug abuse, homosexuality, and sex education; publicity about AIDS; legal and customary protections for civil rights, minority groups, and medical confidentiality; access to health care and insurance; and the interplay of formal and informal interest groups in shaping policy. The spectrum of AIDS policy ranges from severe "contain-and-control" programs to much more benign plans based on education, cooperation, and inclusion. By scrutinizing the responses to AIDS so far, this book aims to give countries around the world a chance to learn from one another's mistakes and triumphs. It will be essential reading for all students and professionals in public health and public policy
