Davis vividly shows that not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts. As an anthropologist, a human rights activist and a former Global Fund official, Davis is an insider and an outsider, drawing a rich, nuanced and compelling portrait of the HIV response today. – Joseph Amon, Ph.D., MSPH, Clinical Professor and Director of the Office of Global Health, Drexel University
