AIDS in Nigeria: A Nation on the Threshold

Harvard University Press

Imagine an African village with no mothers or fathers, just children and grandparents. Increasingly, people across Africa are not having to imagine such a world: they’re living it, every day.

And Nigeria, the most populous country on the continent, is facing what, could become one of the largest epidemics in the history of AIDS. The book, "AIDS in Nigeria" is to help ensure that does not happen. Written by dozens of leading HIV experts, the book explores the dynamics of the epidemic, analyzes prevention efforts, identifies crucial gaps, and formulates effective strategies for controlling the epidemic.

"AIDS in Nigeria" is illustrated with Dominic's portraits of people whose lives have been forever transformed by AIDS. Their stories reveal the human costs of the epidemic–and the courage required to overcome it.
