Ancestors and Antiretrovirals

Claire Laurier Decoteau

University of Chicago Press

The book ends with a ‘Coda’ that reflects on the contribution this book makes to the political battle against the disease, in its fourth decade of existence. In so doing, it provides a critique of the ways in which technocratic neoliberal and biomedical solutions have failed to address some of the underlying, fundamental causes of the epidemic. As inequality has become a bemoaned but accepted facet of life in the late neoliberal era, the survival of the poorest of the poor becomes an increasingly political project.

Keywords:   AIDS politics, antiretrovirals, neoliberalism, survival, life strategies, health inequality, bio-politics
