Dilemmas of AIDS in the Republic of Congo
This chapter examines the AIDS epidemic and the concomitant political and financial crises in the Republic of Congo. It describes the postcolonial, postsocialist Republic of Congo prior to the 1997 civil war, where borderland was as much metaphoric and situational as geographic and postcolonial, and where the treatment of AIDS patients was virtually impossible. The chapter discusses local ways of managing and curtailing speech about and knowledge of AIDS, and the politics of international health interventions.
