When describing the work of an international AIDS organization, he complains that it would have been better "if agency representatives had first sat down with people, learned their language, got to know their joys, fears, and hopes, and only then designed intervention and care programs" p. I cannot disagree with such an assertion. But public health graduates are unlikely to become anthropologists and there needs to be a workable middle ground.
The topic is too important--and perhaps too urgent--to leave such issues of cultural sensitivity to trained anthropologists. This book would be more useful for Africanists irrespective of discipline if it were more regionally grounded. At the same time, the subtitle alluding to "Africa" as a whole is neither justified nor necessary. As it is, the book makes an important contribution to understanding AIDS in Zimbabwe and provides a useful set of findings that can and should inform the implementation of AIDS programs across the continent. Let us hope it gets into the hands of public health graduates soon.
