Summary
  • "Focusing in particular on the U.S.-based organization Health GAP, Drugs into Bodies chronicles the birth and expansion of the global AIDS treatment activist movement - a movement that refuses to accept that people with HIV in the developing world should simply be left to die. Drawing on the legacy of the protest group ACT UP and other earlier AIDS activism, Health GAP and like-minded allies have forged a global network to combat the AIDS crisis in Africa and throughout the developing world
  • From the White House to the United Nations, from plush corporate offices to South African shantytowns, AIDS treatment activists have defied the dictates of globalization, altered government policies, shamed multinational corporations, secured funding for treatment, and brought hope to millions of people with HIV."--Jacket
