In 1993 Helen Epstein, a scientist with a biotechnology company searching for an AIDS vaccine, moved to Uganda, where she witnessed firsthand the suffering caused by the HIV virus. In this dramatic & illuminating book, she recounts the struggle of international health experts, governments, & ordinary Africans to understand the devastating spread of HIV in Africa, & traces how responses to the crisis have changed in light of new medical developments & new political realities. It is a mesmerizing story of scientific breakthroughs & false starts, and of the human costs of policymakers' missteps & inaction.
