Mortal Combat is a history of AIDS policy in South Africa. The book exposes the strategy and tactics of AIDS denialists and focuses on the struggle for antiretrovirals to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV and to extend the lives of people living with AIDS. *** AIDS denialism has resulted in the deaths of at least hundreds of thousands of people. Nattrass’s book provides an important service to the world and will save lives." – Mark Wainberg, Director of the McGill U. AIDS Centre, past President of the International AIDS Society, and co-chair of the Toronto 2006 AIDS Conference.
