This book contains contributions to the Pre-International AIDS Conference Workshop. It begins with country specific case studies to review the responses to HIV & AIDS already implemented in Bangladesh, Thailand and South Africa. The second part of this publication explores key issues in HIV & AIDS - namely human rights and gender issues and the reasons why such issues need to be incorporated into programmes to address HIV & AIDS. The final part outlines the value of Islamic teachings that can be drawn upon in HIV & AIDS prevention and care, and the roles that should be played by government, religious leaders, and Muslim NGO activists in confronting the challenges presented by HIV & AIDS
