Also known as

Folk and lay theories in South African townships

Description

"Why do alternative, non-scientific explanations of HIV/AIDS continue to circulate in South Africa's townships after almost 30 years of AIDS education? In A Different Kind of Aids, David Dickinson explores the folk and lay theories that still circulate within township communities, despite extensive educational efforts and the availability of antiretroviral treatment."--Back cover.
