All I Eat is Medicine charts the lives of individuals and institutions in the thick of the Mozambican AIDS epidemic during the global scale-up of treatment for HIV/AIDS in Mozambique at the turn of the twenty-first century. Even as it saved lives, the AIDS treatment scale-up perpetuated the exploitation and exclusion that was implicated in the propagation of the epidemic in the first place. This book calls attention to the global social commitments and responsibilities that a truly therapeutic global health requires.
