Abstract

"Studying the impact of HIV/AIDS on democratic governance, and how the latter can be a factor in the prevention, treatment, care and support of people living with HIV/AIDS and in dealing with the pandemic, is essential to achieving sustainable development, particularly in countries with high HIV prevalence rates. Dr. Hsu makes an important contribution in this regard. Her paper shows that introducing democratic governance practices into development does facilitate the building of a communitiy's HIV resilience. From such a perspective, governance issues are not a luxury for developed countries, but a means of survival and prosperity for developing countries."
