The road of lost innocence by Somaly Mam( Book )

Born in a Cambodian village, Somaly Mam was sold into sexual slavery by her grandfather at age twelve. For the next decade she was shuttled through the brothels that make up the sprawling sex trade of Southeast Asia. She suffered the brutality and horrors of human trafficking--rape, torture, deprivation--until she managed to escape with the help of a French aid worker. Emboldened by her newfound freedom, education, and security, Somaly blossomed but remained haunted by the girls in the brothels she left behind. This book tells the story of her awakening as an activist and her harrowing and brave fight against the powerful and corrupt forces that steal the lives of these girls. She has built shelters, started schools, and founded an organization that has so far saved more than four thousand women and children in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos.--From publisher description

La 4e de couverture indique :" Une course contre la montre raconte l'urgence et l'exciation d'être à la fois sur le front pour combattre les maladies infectieuses actuelles, tout en préparant la lutte contre les épidémies à venir. Ce livre haletant relate les péripéties d'une vie de chercheur dédiée à deux virus pas comme les autres : Ebola, dont Peter Piot est le co-découvreur, et le VIH, virus du sida. Passant de la réalité du terrain en Afrique - bonnes soeurs belges propageant l'épidémie d'Ebola avec des aiguilles non stérilisées - aux couloirs feutrés de l'ONU et aux réunions interminables pour lever des fonds et sensibiliser les hommes politiques à la lutte contrte le sida au niveau mondial, Peter Piot quitte son laboratoire pour discuter avec Georges Bush, Nelson Mandela, Fidel Castro, ou encore Mobutu Sese Seko, se heurtant à des murs idéologiques dont l'entêtement et la determination finissent parfois par avoir raison."
