HIV and AIDS raise ethical questions that extend throughout the life cycle.Ethics and AIDS: Compassion and Justice in Global Crisis pulls together many of the these life issues in one book and carefully considers them in the context of the realities of the daily existence of people across the globe suffering from this terrible disease. In thoughtful analysis, Overberg suggests appropriate responses in light of a Christian ethic that challenges individuals, governments, parishes, and individuals across the political spectrum to address this worldwide crisis.
