This course is designed to understand the political dimensions of the pandemic of HIV/AIDS. We look at the history of public health responses to HIV/AIDS over time at the international level. First, we examine how each country has differently responded to the common global health crisis. Second, we explore international responses to HIV/AIDS such as how the United Nations and the private sector—including NGOs and activist groups—have played a role in making of public policy. Lastly, we look at the ways in which the problems and challenges of HIV/AIDS have influenced other political issues and challenges, such as globalization, poverty, and development.
