Ideological blinders have led to millions of preventable AIDS deaths in Africa. Dr. Edward C. Green, former director of the Harvard AIDS Prevention Project, describes how Western AIDS "experts" stubbornly pursued ineffective remedies and sabotaged the most successful AIDS prevention program on that ravaged continent. He calls for new emphasis on promoting sexual fidelity-the only strategy (besides male circumcision) shown to work there. Book jacket.
