Medicine and the politics of knowledge
Medicine and the politics of knowledge
Susan Levine

Medicine and the Politics of Knowledge situates South Africa - including its history of stances and political formations around HIV/AIDS—in the broader context of questions relating to science, medicine, human experimentation, and structural violence, all of which shape the cases in the book. Putting South Africa in the context of other cases of contention and contestation about science and medicine in India, Latin America and China helps us to understand the particular history of the South African case itself.

The Practicalities of Using Nevirapine for PMTCT in Under-Resourced Settings
The Practicalities of Using Nevirapine for PMTCT in Under-Resourced Settings
The case of Qaukeni District in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa
Henry Fomundam, Thabang Mosala, Olive Shisana, Karl Peltzer, Thembiso Pakade, Pelisa Dana

Implementation of the programmes intended to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS (PMTCT) is a major challenge, particularly in developing countries. Despite the controversies about Nevirapine (NVP) resistance, safety and efficacy, it is still widely acclaimed and used in most resource-limited countries because it is affordable, easy-to-use and practical. This study identifies the gaps in NVP use for PMTCT in a rural setting, where almost 42% of pregnant women have no access to healthcare facilities and deliver at home, with the support of traditional birth assistants or family members. As a result, many rural HIV-positive pregnant women deliver without the opportunity of PMTCT therapy provided by ante-natal clinics.

Promoting Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health in East and Southern Africa
Promoting Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health in East and Southern Africa
Knut-Inge Klepp, Alan J. Flisher, Sylvia F. Kaaya (eds)

In Africa, as in many parts of the world, adolescent reproductive health is a controversial issue for policy makers and programme planners. Adolescents are particularly vulnerable to HIV and AIDS and to a host of other problems such as sexually transmitted infection, unwanted pregnancy, unsafe abortions, sexual abuse, female genital mutilation and unsafe circumcision. Yet many countries don't have adolescent health policies and much remains to be done to ensure that adolescents can access appropriate sexual and reproductive health services.

Promoting mental health in scarce-resource contexts
Promoting mental health in scarce-resource contexts
Emerging evidence and practice
Inge Petersen, Arvin Bhana, Alan J Flisher, Leslie Swartz, Linda Richter (eds)

Mental health promotion strives to improve mental health through developing ways of adjusting and coping with challenges. These strategies are at the heart of human development and can strengthen social and economic outcomes, and are especially important in low to middle income countries where hardship is common, and where the emphasis has been solely on care and treatment of people with mental illness.
