Inspired by his experiences working as an infectious disease physician in Africa, Jacques Pepin, author of The Origin of AIDS, looks back at events that triggered the emergence of HIV/AIDS in Africa and traces its subsequent development into a modern pandemic. He shows how the disease was first transmitted from chimpanzees to man, and then how colonialization, urbanization, prostitution, and public health campaigns combined to fuel the spread of the HIV.
