And so, following Robin Gorna’s (1996, p. 294) plea that, “A feminist approach to AIDS is long overdue,” this book obviously comes from a womanist point of view. The crisis includes questioning the role not only of money and/or policy but also of information gaps in what has become the most blatant example imaginable of global health injustices. Transnational in scope, HIV/AIDS nevertheless knows no geo-political boundaries; yet, we increasingly realize it is a disease of poverty, something of today’s equivalent of nineteenth century tuberculosis as a North-South issue epitomizing divides between developed and developing countries.

One of the poorest countries in the world, where some two-thirds of Zambians exist on less than a dollar a day, one out of every six adults is living with HIV, life expectancy is below 40 years, and more than 7000,000 children are AIDS orphans. At first, AIDS patients were denied admission to various African hospitals, as health care workers worried about its being some kind of contagious disease. Even once they were admitted, a number of wards were given scant treatment, or were ignored. As medical staff have been trained and sensitized to what this illness is really about, many have responded positively; at the same time, a number of Persons Living with AIDS (PLWA) in Africa have opted to spend their final days in their own homes.

Mass media in the West has recently covered Africa as the new hot spot for celebrities. Think about Bono’s Product Red campaign or his guest-editorship of a ( July 2007) Vanity Fair special issue on Africa,13 Angelina Jolie’s having Brad Pitt’s baby in Namibia, Madonna’s adopting a baby in Malawi, Oprah Winfrey’s setting up a girls school in South Africa, Bill Clinton’s foundation and efforts against AIDS, Clay Aiken performing in Uganda, Jessica Simpson in Kenya, Don Cheadle’s getting involved in Rwanda, Mia Farrow and George Clooney railing against atrocities in Darfur and the Congo.
