  1. AIDS and the social side of health.

    Article - En anglais

    The presence of AIDS in epidemic proportions in the African context can directly and indirectly affect the health of the majority of people.

    AIDS highlights the social side of health, those factors of a social nature that enhances or potentially weakens the health status of individuals and whole communities.

    Attention solely on a limited range of social behaviors of health activities may obscure this fact with the consequence that the spread of HIV/AIDS is not controlled.

    Focus is turned in this paper to the stress in AIDS policies and programs on terminal illness more than on terminal life.
