Spotlights the body of work with regard to the sociology of AIDS showing how this has grown over the last two decades of the twentieth century. Indicates that sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are affected by patterns of sexual behaviour along with drug related practices. Cites the vulnerability of low socio‐economic groups to STIs, with the use of an explanatory figure with lots of detail within it. Summarizes that health research on inequality, particularly with regard to HIV and STIs would assist greatly in determining the relevant factors.
