It aims to understand how individual actions to prevent HIV transmission are constrained and encouraged by situational and social context.

AIDS, Drugs and Prevention offers practical and theoretical insights into community-based health work in the time of AIDS. It provides invaluable reading for students, lecturers, researchers and practioners in health promotion, health policy, social work and medical sociology.
