520    With HIV becoming the leading cause of infectious-disease 
       mortality in Mainland China, this book focuses on tackling
       HIV/AIDS in the face of rapid political and economic 
       change in China. Featuring contributions by over a dozen 
       leading figures in the field, this book is the go-to text 
       for any student or reader interested in how national and 
       international organizations are attempting to control this
       epidemic. The book includes chapters on the epidemiology, 
       treatment, and prevention of HIV, as well as several 
       chapters that discuss in detail specific provincial- and 
       national-level programs to control and treat HIV. It 
       chronicles the Chinese governments amazing about-face, as 
       it replaced underfunded, non-evidence based policy 
       decisions with successful, science-based approaches to 
       disease control and prevention, including the adoption of 
       once controversial needle-exchange programs and the 
       establishment of a national HIV/AIDS data registry. It 
       measures the success of national policy decisions, the 
       implementation of treatment policies, and discusses the 
       difficulty of accessing high-risk communities, including 
       people who inject drugs, sex workers, and men who have sex
       with men - groups not easy to reach, study, engage in 
       prevention programs, or treatment, for fear of 
       stigmatization and loss of social status. Further, it 
       documents the spread of HIV to other provinces, and the 
       tragedy that befell repeat plasma donors in Henan and 
       other poor provinces, where reused or improperly 
       sterilized lab equipment caused some villages to have 
       epidemic-level incidence rates. This book represents a 
       positive contribution to the field of AIDS research, 
       making vital, new information available to an interested
