Books Info:

Our Kind of People free pdf HIV/AIDS has profoundly affected life in sub-Saharan Africa. It has been reported as one of the most destructive diseases in recent memory - tearing apart communities and ostracising the afflicted. But the emphasis on death, despair and destruction hardly captures the many and varied impacts of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Award-winning novelist and doctor Uzodinma Iweala embarks on a remarkable journey in Nigeria meeting individuals and communities that are struggling daily to understand both the impact and meaning of the disease. He speaks with people from all walks of life, those living with HIV/AIDS and those who aren't, doctors, nurses, truck drivers, sex workers, shopkeepers, students, parents and children who are all trying to make sense of life, love, and our connections to each other as people in the face of an unprecedented epidemic. Beautifully written and heart-breakingly honest, Our Kind of People goes behind the headlines of this epidemic to show the real lives affected by it, illuminating the scope of the crisis and a continent's valiant struggle.
