Academic Alliance Foundation Announces Publishing of Global HIV/AIDS Medicine
Date:1/8/2008

WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Academic Alliance Foundation announces the publishing of Global HIV/AIDS Medicine, the first medical textbook aimed at a comprehensive approach to the management of HIV/AIDS as a global problem. The book reflects a changing landscape in HIV/AIDS prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, with particular emphasis on the realities of HIV/AIDS in resource limited settings.

"On behalf of each of the editors, we hope this textbook is of great value to clinicians, scientists, and epidemiologists throughout the world who are involved in the battle against HIV/AIDS," said Dr. Warner Greene, President of the Academic Alliance Foundation.

By bringing in new global expertise and explicitly addressing the challenges of prevention and care in diverse resource limited settings, Global HIV/AIDS reflects growing recognition of the need to train medical professionals to treat the epidemic on the stage on which it often unfolds. The book features: current guidance and realities of HIV/AIDS management by geographical region; the ability to diagnose AIDS manifestations by comparing them to full-color clinical images; and tables that allow a practitioner to quickly gather, compare and review essential data.

"Extremely readable and compact, yet thorough enough to answer most questions clinicians might encounter in their daily struggle to provide optimal care to patients with HIV infections." (Journal of the American Medical Association)

Collectively, the background and experience of the editors is nothing short of outstanding, a "who's who" of global experts on HIV and AIDS medicine. Warner C. Greene, M.D., PhD, a world-renowned scientist and expert in the field of virology and immunology, is the founding director and senior investigator of the Gladstone Institute of Virology & Immunology and professor of medicine, microbiology and immunology at the University of California. Dr. Greene is also a founding member of the Board of Directors of the Academic Alliance Foundation and was recently appointed President. Paul A. Volberding, M.D. is widely considered one of the world's leading AIDS experts. He co-founded one of the first AIDS-designated clinics in the early 1980's at San Francisco General Hospital. Currently he is the Chief of Medical Services at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center and a member of the AAF Scientific Advisory Board. Merle A. Sande, M.D. was also one of the world's preeminent experts on HIV/AIDS and was a primary architect of the AIDS programs in San Francisco and in the state of California from 1981-96. Dr. Sande was the Co-Founder and President (Emeritus) of the AAF. Dr. Sande passed away November 14, 2007 after a long career of working to overcome the burden of HIV/AIDS and infectious diseases around the world. Joep Lange, M.D. was instrumental in the creation and growth of clinical care of HIV-infected patients as early as 1982. He is currently the President of the International AIDS Society, Professor of Medicine at the AMC Center for Poverty Related Communicable Diseases and a member of the AAF Scientific Advisory Board.

The book is dedicated to the visionary leaders of the Academic Alliance for AIDS Care in Africa, a model for care-based professional training and research as an indispensable means of ending the AIDS pandemic.
