HIV infections – Thailand – Religious aspects – Christianity This book provides insights into the nature of sex in the villages of Thailand. Dr. Patchanee Malikhao, its author and a Thai sociologist, spend time in villages to obtain first-hand knowledge of strategies that may help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS through sexual relations. The book also probes whether social determinants, including culture and religion, help or hinder local residents in their own attempts to curb the spread of AIDS. The cost of managing the disease has increased significantly compared to many other health interventions. To make sure such expenditures are effective, we need to understand the social conrext of prevention strategies and confirm that it is relevant to the social relations of people. This book will help us achieve this understanding.
