From the Ground Up is a three-volume EGPAF publication containing best practices and lessons learned from the past two decades of the global HIV/AIDS response.
More than 320 distinguished HIV/AIDS professionals from around the globe have contributed to From the Ground Up, which provides practical guidance targeted toward health care providers, managers, policy makers, implementers, and the academic community.
According to a review published in the March 20, 2010 issue of The Lancet
, the publication is “unique in imparting concern and compassion for those affected by HIV/AIDS, alongside invaluable science, statistics, and policy issues relating to this pandemic.”
Each volume features several profiles of extraordinary individuals on the front lines of the AIDS pandemic
, ranging from a community health nurse in western Kenya to the first African religious leader to publicly disclose his HIV-positive status. These profiles include photographs by award-winning photojournalist Dominic Chavez and words by John Donnelly, both formerly of The Boston Globe.
EGPAF produced this groundbreaking publication with support from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “A Day in the Life of Africa” AIDS Education Fund, Harvard University, and others.
EGPAF is offering the book free of charge in the hope that it will reach the widest possible audience, especially those doing program implementation work “on the ground” in resource-limited settings. Given the dynamic nature of the global health field, EGPAF is currently developing an interactive Web-based version of the publication.
