Reviews

"The book is particularly good at demonstrating the ways in which the historical context affected the development of AIDS activism, and how the transition to democracy both opened up new opportunities and brought new difficulties . . . As Mbali's book rightly reminds us, the struggle for global health justice is founded on the work of grassroots campaigners. Activists really can make a difference." - International Affairs
