Nyanzi on President Jammeh's HIV/AIDS Healing Saga in The Gambia

Stella Nyanzi has published a book chapter entitled President Jammeh's HIV/AIDS Healing Saga in The Gambia, that is published in the edited volume entitled African Responses to HIV/AIDS: Between Speech and Action. The book editors are Dr. Johnson Ige Segun and Prof. Tim Quinlan. The book is published by the University of KwaZulu Natal Press. The author discusses a notorious example of poor leadership in Africa, and its disastrous effects on a country. According to the editors in their introduction,

'In chapter six, Stella Nyanzi examines how The Gambia's president, Yahya Jammeh manipulated state authority to conjoin science and the state in service of his personal claims of an ability as an Islamic healer to cure HIV/AIDS. Her detailed analysis uncovers the many layers of conflicts and compromise that have threatened the development of an effective national response to HIV/AIDS' (Segun and Quinlan 2012:6).

Other contributors to the volume include Judith Flick, Fatima Harrak, Shauna Mottiar, John-Eudes Lengwe Kunda, Keyan Tomaselli, Paul Nchoji Nkwi, H. Russell Bernard, Getnet Tadele, Ademola J. Ajuwon and Warren Parker. The book is available from The University of KwaZulu Natal Press (see http://www.ukznpress.co.za/?class=bb_ukzn_books&method=view_books&global[fields][_id]=403).
