Abstract

"This paper considers the growing response to AIDS in Asia. In particular, it examines the way culture, governance, geography, and history influence and are influenced by the response to AIDS: the feminization of AIDS, the internationalization of the response to the epidemic, and the roles of drug use and human trafficking in spreading the disease are three important aspects of AIDS in Asia. Finally, the paper concludes with some broad suggestions for moving forward."
