Interim and organizers of election:
The Commission on AIDS specializes in the study of grass roots dynamics and cross cultural comparisons. Publications have included 'AIDS and the Grass Roots' (Ipelegeng Botswana and Nordic School of Public Health) and 'AIDS - A Cross Cultural Companion' (LIT Verlag forthcoming). An electronic encyclopedia is also maintained on the IUAES Commission website.
A book, sponsored by C.I.P.S.H. (UNESCO) is in preparation summarizing the anthropological contribution, past and potential, to the study of AIDS, in particular on coping with AIDS, especially in relation to women and children.
