This book covers the history and progress of HIV prevention and treatment efforts in Nigeria. The book highlights the successful collaborations that developed over the years between Nigerian HIV/AIDS specialists and their Western counterparts. Launched in 2003, US President George W. Bush started the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, the largest effort by any nation to combat a single disease.
A Line Drawn in the Sand By emphasizing the dramatic results that investments in AIDS treatments in Africa can bring, this book provides lessons to nations about scaling up their own treatment responses, hope to individuals and communities confronted with the often devastating impact of AIDS, and inspiration to the international HIV/AIDS community.
