Summary
This groundbreaking work, with its unique anthropological approach, sheds new light on a central conundrum surrounding AIDS in Africa. Robert J. Thornton explores why HIV prevalence fell during the 1990s in Uganda despite that countrys having one of Africas highest fertility rates, while during the same period HIV prevalence rose in South Africa, the country with Africas lowest fertility rate. Thornton finds that culturally and socially determined differences in the structure of sexual networksrather than changes in individual behaviorwere responsible for these radical differences in HIV
