AIDS and the Ecology of Poverty

This chapter discusses the methodologies employed by health scientists and social scientists that prevent them from seeing the interactions that produce the epidemic spread of HIV, from measuring those interactions, and from using that information in prevention policy. It examines the methodological limitations in the fields of public health, epidemiology, and health economics that impede the understanding of health in the developing world and obstruct the prevention of HIV/AIDS. It criticizes the limitations of the transmission models used by major organizations administering AIDS funds to evaluate HIV-prevention programs.

Keywords:   methodology, public health, epidemiology, health economics, transmission models
