The tragedy of the HIV/AIDS pandemic is not only in the tens of millions of lives losts but in the failure of governments to respond in ways that are known to protect people against infection with HIV.

I've just learned about a new book by Helen Epstein, The Invisible Cure: Africa, the West, and the Fight Against AIDS that sounds like a must read.

You can read the heartbreaking analysis yourself in the August 16, 2007 of The New York Review Of Books.

I've written many times that every new case of HIV transmission results from a lack of political and moral will to do what we know must be done for prevention. Epstein's book shows just how true that is.
