AIDS between science and politics by Peter Piot( )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2019 in English and Japanese and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Piot, founding executive director of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), recounts his experience as a clinician, scientist, and activist fighting the disease from its earliest manifestation to today. The AIDS pandemic was not only catastrophic to the health of millions worldwide but also fractured international relations, global access to new technologies, and public health policies in nations across the globe. As he struggled to get ahead of the disease, Piot found science does little good when it operates independently of politics and economics, and politics is worthless if it rejects scientific evidence and respect for human rights. Piot describes how the epidemic altered global attitudes toward sexuality, the character of the doctor-patient relationship, the influence of civil society in international relations, and traditional partisan divides. AIDS thrust health into national and international politics where, he argues, it rightly belongs. The global reaction to AIDS over the past decade is the positive result of this partnership, showing what can be achieved when science, politics, and policy converge on the ground. Yet it remains a fragile achievement, and Piot warns against complacency and the consequences of reduced investments. He refuses to accept a world in which high levels of HIV infection are the norm. Instead, he explains how to continue to reduce the incidence of the disease to minute levels through both prevention and treatment, until a vaccine is discovered

L'épidémie du sida mondialisation des risques, transformations de la santé publique et développement by Peter Piot( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in French and Undetermined and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leçon inaugurale prononcée le 7 janvier 2010 Chaire internationale Savoirs contre pauvreté (2009-2010) Trente années de riposte mondiale à l'épidémie du sida ont transformé la pratique de la santé publique et influencé les politiques de développement international. Longtemps directeur de l'ONUSIDA, Peter Piot en dresse le bilan. Il montre comment la lutte pour la prévention et pour le traitement des personnes porteuses du VIH a favorisé les approches multidisciplinaires et multisectorielles, l'engagement des communautés affectées, la promotion des droits de la personne, une évaluation rigoureuse des programmes, et une mobilisation mondiale des gouvernements et de la société civile. Ces approches peuvent être appliquées à d'autres problèmes de santé et de développement. La chaire internationale Savoirs contre pauvreté reçoit le soutien de l'Agence Française de Développement. Inaugural lecture given on January 7th 2010 International Chair in Knowledge against Poverty (2009-2010) The world's response to the AIDS epidemic over the last thirty years has transformed public health practices and influenced international development policies. Here Peter Piot gives an appraisal of his work as the Founding Executive Director of UNAIDs from 1994 to 2008. He shows how the fight for AIDS prevention and the treatment of HIV-positive patients encouraged and helped develop multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral approaches, the involvement of the communities affected by the disease, the promotion of individuals' rights, the stringent assessment of health programmes and the world-wide mobilisation of governments and civil society alike. Such approaches can be applied to help solve other health and development problems. The International Knowledge against Poverty Chair receives support from the French Development Agency (Agence Française de Développement, AFD)

Nutrition and health in developing countries by Richard D Semba( )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major burden of health problems worldwide exists in developing countries, where there is much suffering from malnutrition, from increased levels of infection, and from an inequitable share of the world's health care resources. In Nutrition and Health in Developing Countries, a team of leading public health and infectious disease experts, epidemiologists, and clinical nutritionists break new ground by reviewing the major health problems of these countries and detailing the role that poor nutrition plays in their etiology. In their treatment of the epidemiology, prevention, and control of these health problems, the contributors examine a variety of such pressing medical problems as maternal mortality, low birth weight, infant mortality, and child growth and development, as well as the most common associated diseases (measles, malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, diarrhea, and respiratory disease). Specific nutritional problems are also addressed in cutting-edge articles on vitamin A and zinc deficiencies; iron deficiency and anemia; and multiple micronutrient malnutrition. Additional articles review the latest thinking on how best to design effective policies to solve the nutrition and health problems of developing countries. Innovative and interdisciplinary, Nutrition and Health in Developing Countries synthesizes the latest knowledge concerning the major infectious disease and nutritional problems in these countries and demonstrates the fundamental importance of addressing the problems of malnutrition and "hidden hunger"(vitamin and mineral deficiencies) needed to resolve these all too widespread health problems
Major infectious diseases by King K Holmes( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Infectious diseases are the leading cause of death globally, particularly among children and young adults.

Major Infectious Diseases identifies feasible, cost-effective packages of interventions and strategies across delivery platforms to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS, other sexually transmitted infections, tuberculosis, malaria, adult febrile illness, viral hepatitis, and neglected tropical diseases. The volume emphasizes the need to effectively address emerging antimicrobial resistance, strengthen health systems, and increase access to care. The attainable goals are to reduce incidence, develop innovative approaches, and optimize existing tools in resource-constrained settings

Le sida dans le monde : entre science et politique by Peter Piot( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in French and English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le sida est l'un des événements majeurs de notre époque. Il a changé profondément notre rapport à la sexualité, la relation patient-médecin, l'influence de la société civile dans les relations internationales et la solidarité Nord-Sud. Il a projeté la santé dans les cénacles de la politique nationale et internationale là où elle doit figurer. Mon expérience de chercheur, de clinicien, de fondateur et de dirigeant de l'Onusida et de militant dans la lutte contre le sida, depuis le début de l'épidémie, m'a convaincu que, sans expression politique et économique, la science apporte peu aux personnes ; et que, sans fondation scientifique et respect des droits de l'homme, la politique est inefficace et risque même d'être nuisible" P.P. Les enseignements médicaux, culturels, sociaux et politiques de trente années de lutte contre l'épidémie

Une course contre la montre : mes combats contre les virus mortels, sida et Ebola by Peter Piot( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in French and English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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."

La epidemia del sida y la globalización de los riesgos by Peter Piot( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in Spanish and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Con cuarenta millones de personas infectadas por el VIH y tres millones de nuevos casos cada año, el sida se ha convertido en el presagio de un nuevo tipo de infección viral que caracteriza de forma simbólica la globalización y los cambios sociales. ¿Cómo es posible que, en menos de treinta años, el virus haya infectado a setenta millones de personas en todo el mundo, si el punto de partida es una única persona y un único virus? Entrevistado por Michel Caral, el doctor Peter Piot reconstruye el nacimiento de un síndrome mundial y las primeras respuestas a la epidemia; muestra los problemas a los que tiene que hacer frente la prevención frente a las ideologías; reivindica el rol de la sociedad civil y la respuesta internacional para afrontar el reto del sida y se vuelca con la formidable esperanza que representa el acceso generalizado a los tratamientos antirretrovirales y las dificultades de mantener una prevención a través de una sexualidad con menos riesgos. Finalmente, habla sobre el futuro de la epidemia, las vacunas y una situación en la que conviviremos con el sida igual que lo hacemos con otro tipo de riesgos
