In February 1989, the 3rd conference on Social Aspects of AIDS took place at South Bank Polytechnic. Social researchers working in psychology, socio logy, anthropology and education were represented, along with health care workers and members of statutory and voluntary organisations. The confe rence's themes emphasised the individual, cultural and policy dimen sions of HIV disease, and under these broad headings a wide range of paper s were given. This book contains many of the papers given at this conference as well as a number of additional contributions. The book is representative of a range of research currently under way. Some of the chapters are empir ical in their emphasis, some are more concerned with reporting on parti cular health education and health policy interventions, and some begin to develop a critique of some of the assumptions that operate in and aroun d contemporary social research agendas.
