Brazil, known for both its deep historical inequalities and its growing role as a powerful in the global economy, has been recognized as exemplary in the way it has responded to its significant AIDS epidemic, particularly by providing universal access to state of the art medical care, including expensive antiretroviral medications. This ethnography from de fields of medical anthropology and social medicine explores how it is to grow up living with or affected by HIV and AIDS when the right to health is respected.To what extent have Brazil?s social responses transformed the everyday lives of people afflicted by HIV or AIDS? Through historically oriented interpretations and analyses driven by a critical perspective, the author presents how the lives of this group of Brazilian children and adolescents are transformed within in a social paradox that he terms diseases of poverty-privileged responses.
