Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

HIV/AIDS is a scary subject. Not only can it destroy a body but it can also destroy a family, friendships, and even a community. Nobody likes to talk about it, but ignoring the problem won't make it go away. In fact, what you don't know can hurt you and somebody else. The only way we can overcome this disease is through education, precaution, and proper treatment, because nobody is immune.

The Reverend Luis Cortés teaches you how to understand the virus and the disease. Prevention is the best approach, but contracting HIV is no longer a death sentence. There are now a variety of treatment choices available and people are living with it, not dying from it. Above all, whether you or someone you know has HIV/AIDS, or you simply want to educate yourself, realize this: There is an answer.

About the Author

The Reverend Luis Cortés Jr. is the president and CEO of Esperanza USA, the largest Hispanic faith-based community-development corporation in the country. In January 2005, he was featured as one of Time magazine's "25 Most Influential Evangelicals."
