The Most Vulnerable: Women with AIDS and Islam in Mali
By Christopher A. Brooks and Salim Coumaré.
New York: LINUS Learning, 2017
This is an excellent piece of research and writing about health and AIDS in Mali, produced by an anthropologist who is a specialist in the field. The way in which the women's stories are recounted by Dr Brooks, with his colleague and doctoral candidate Salim Coumaré, touches our hearts as well as informing our brains about the problems these women face in their society and in their families. A valuable contribution to our knowledge of West Africa and an interesting spin-off from the Sister City relationship between Richmond, in Virginia and Ségou, in Mali. Thank you, Dr Brooks.
