AIDS denialism and AIDS origin conspiracy theories are nothing new. They have dominated the media and political discourse in the past, and are widely acknowledged as major contributors to South Africa’s high HIV infection rate. The importance of Nattrass’s contribution is a systematic analysis of the process, people involved and psychology of AIDS denialism. She examines the conspiracy theories related to its origins and the conditions necessary for them to spread.
As Director of the AIDS and Society Research Unit at UCT, and one of the few people to consistently make her voice heard against the rhetoric of AIDS denialism at a time when much of the South African academic community had become very quiet, Nattrass is eminently qualified to write a book on such matters.
