Benton, Adia '99, Asst. Professor of Anthropology

HIV Exceptionalism: Development Through Disease in Sierra Leone
Author: Adia Benton '99, Assistant Professor of Anthropology
Publisher: University of Minnesota Press; Pub. Date: February 2015; Subject: African Studies; Anthropology;

"What Adia Benton chronicles in this ethnographically rich and often moving book is how one war-ravaged nation reoriented itself as a country suffering from HIV at the expense of other, more pressing health concerns. During her fieldwork in the capital, Freetown, a city of one million people, at least thirty NGOs administered internationally funded programs that included HIV/AIDS prevention and care. Benton probes why HIV exceptionalism--the idea that HIV is an exceptional disease requiring an exceptional response--continues to guide approaches to the epidemic worldwide and especially in Africa, even in low-prevalence settings.”--publisher description
