ASIA : The new epidemic zone for HIV/AIDS.
Two articles that appear in this journal present unique ethnographic assessments of the commercial sex industry in Thailand.
They discuss how culture, society, and organizations interact with respect to communication approaches, information dissemination, and organizational-behavior change in preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS.
Each of these articles provides important insights into the many factors that have intensified the epidemic as well as those identified opportunities for concerted community organization, behavioral reinforcement, and social structural approaches for HIV/AIDS prevention and control.
