The Encyclopedia of AIDS : A Social Political, Cultural and Scientific Record of the HIV Epidemic, is the first reference work to undertake such a task by covering all major aspects of the global. It provides extensive coverage of major topics in eight areas, from basic science to policy and law.

The Acquired Immuno-Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) has been considered as a personal tragedy for millions of people throughout the world—both those who have suffered with an died from AIDS as well as those who struggle with it still. It is these men and women who have borne the brunt of the epidemic, often with inspiring dignity and courage.

In addition to being a personal tragedy, AIDS has proven to be a special challenge, a cultural catharsis, a political quagmire, and a scientific puzzle. Perhaps more than any other threat to the public health in modern times, the AIDS epidemic has entangled not only individuals but also families and friends, cultures and communities, cities and nations throughout the world.
