“After more than 30 years into the HIV epidemic, there is still an incredible amount of misinformation about the disease. This book provides up-to-date, straightforward, understandable answers to the most important questions commonly asked about HIV/AIDS—it’s like having a one-on-one conversation with noted HIV/AIDS expert and educator Dr. Joel Gallant from Johns Hopkins. Dr. Gallant’s thoughtful, cutting-edge, comprehensive (and sometimes humorous) answers make this a must-read for anyone who is infected (or affected) by HIV/AIDS.”
Roy M. Gulick, MD, MPH Professor of Medicine, Chief, Division of Infectious Diseases, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY

“Wise and well-adapted to purpose defines the word ‘sage’ and describes the advice offered in 100 Questions & Answers About HIV and AIDS. This book is a tremendous resource for people living with HIV, their friends, family members, and healthcare providers. Dr. Gallant’s practical, concise, and supportive answers to a wide range of questions help guide the reader through the process of adapting to an HIV diagnosis, getting into care, and making informed decisions for years to come. The Fourth Edition does a wonderful job of incorporating the evolving nature of HIV medicine. I will continue to recommend this book to all my patients and to my colleagues.”
Judith Currier, MD Professor of Medicine, Chief, Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Center for Clinical AIDS Research and Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California, Los Angeles, CA
