The peculiar epidemic, part I : social response to AIDS in Alameda county


The AIDS epidemic provides an example of a peculiar epidemic, in which threat to social welfare failed to provoke adequate social efforts at containment. 31 AIDS providers are interviewed in California about the development of their AIDS-related services.

The findings support the concept that vulnerabilities can derail epidemic response, making social mobilization an essential tool for epidemic control
