This book stands as the standard single reference for all healthcare workers managing AIDS patients. This concise text discusses every aspect of the disease, from its epidemiology and all that is known of the aetiology, to diagnosis and recognition of the different manifestations of the disease. Special emphasis is placed on the care of patients both within and outside the hospital with chapters on counselling and the psycho–social aspects, palliative care and pain control, and two chapters by patients who are HIV positive which give insight into what it is like to be infected. The book is written and edited by internationally respected specialists.
