The first of its kind, this book examines the adoption of four health technologies in India—Hepatitis B, No Scalpel Vasectomy, Voluntary Counseling and Testing, and Antiretroviral Treatment. Using a set of parameters, the authors not only bring to light the various dimensions, strengths, and weaknesses of adoption of health technologies in India, but also how and where more attention needs to be paid with regard to the adoption of the AIDS vaccine.
