Hiv Aids A Very Short Introduction by Alan Whiteside


Original Title: Hiv Aids A Very Short Introduction

HIV/AIDS is without doubt the worst epidemic to hit humankind since the Black Death. Despite rapid scientific advances, there is still no cure and the drugs are expensive and toxic. In some of the worst affected countries, life expectancy has plummeted to below 35 years, which has led to a serious decline in economic growth, a sharp rise in orphaning, and the imminent collapse of health care systems. This Very Short Introduction tackles the science, the international and local politics, the fascinating demographics, and the devastating consequences of the disease, and explores how we have - and must - respond.

Original Title: What Nurses Know Hiv Aids

What Nurses Know...HIV/AIDS provides up-to-date, reliable and practical health information for people living with HIV and their significant others. In easy-to-understand everyday language the authors give information to help individuals with HIV navigate the healthcare system, covering everything from receiving an initial HIV test to becoming an engaged member of their healthcare team, knowledgeable and actively involved in their healthcare decisions. The authors include vignettes based on their real-life experiences that speak to the individual with aids. However, they approach HIV in a holistic manner and write not for the individual with HIV, but also their friends, family, and community. What Nurses Know Series: Nurses hold a critical role in modern health care that goes beyond their day-to-day duties. They share more information with patients than any other provider group, and are alongside patients twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week offering understanding of complex health issues, holistic approaches to ailments, and advice for the patient that extends to the family. Nurses themselves are a powerful tool in the healing process. The What Nurses Know series will give down-to-earth information, address consumers as equal partners in their care and explain clearly what a reader needs to know and wants to know to understand their condition and move forward with their lives.

Working With Hiv Aids by Jenny Page


Original Title: Working With Hiv Aids

HIV/AIDS affects every walk of life, and has a profound influence on everything we do -- in our closest relationships, at work, at home, at school, college or university. Not a day goes by without a reference to the pandemic in newspapers or on the electronic media. Just as the virus infects the body and every cell in the body, so it affects every single person living on the planet. This book addresses various issues around HIV/AIDS, what it is, how it is spread, what can be done to avoid becoming HIV positive and how to live positively once someone is infected, all discussed in the context of the workplace. "Working with HIV/AIDS" has been developed around the SAQA Fundamental Unit Standard 13915 (Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of HIV/AIDS in a workplace, and its effects on a business sub-sector, own organisation and a specific workplace) for use on NQF level 3. In-line with the unit standard requirements, the book includes a variety of formative assessment activities, using individual, pair and group work assignments, that should appeal to a wide range of learners or readers, as well as actual case studies, fact boxes, other useful and up-to-date information and glossary terms. The book should appeal to a wide audience, from learners at schools and tertiary institutions to members of the general public.
