Major changes in the nature and dynamics of the AIDS epidemic over the last few years are reflected in changing epidemiological trends as well as in the progress made in biomedical research and treatment. AIDS in Europe brings together papers from leading social science researchers to look at the opportunities and challenges these changes bring and the different ways in which they are being responded to in both western and eastern Europe. Papers are organised under three headings:
*new challenges for HIV prevention
*care of people living with HIV/AIDS in a new therapeutic context
*AIDS public policies: from specialisation to normalisation
AIDS in Europe provides a comprehensive overview of current social and behavioural research on HIV and AIDS for all health professionals.
