New Internationalist

Cover for June 2002 - Issue 346

June 2002's Issue

Twenty-two million people have died from AIDS-related illnesses since the disease was first discovered almost 25 years ago - more people than died in Europe during the Black Death of the Middle Ages. And 36 million people are now infected, two-thirds of them in sub-Saharan Africa.

Across the South HIV/AIDS threatens to erode fragile economies and set back development for decades. But this may be just the tip of the iceberg. The HIV virus is poised to explode across Asia and the former Soviet Union. Meanwhile, in the West sophisticated drugs have given people with AIDS new hope.

This month we look at what can be done to beat the AIDS epidemic.

Every month, we put up a selection of articles from the magazine. To enjoy the complete magazine, subscribe and receive three free issues and a world map.

Smiley-faced monopolists

Smiley-faced monopolists

For Facebook, Amazon and Google, we have traded our privacy for something we find useful and put on hold our support for ethical shopping in exchange for the ease of low (or no) price and almost-instant gratification. This month's magazine looks at just how far down the line we are and asks how deeply exploitative and anti-democratic is this new ‘surveillance capitalism’ under which we now live. This month’s contributors include security expert Bruce Schneier, psychologist Robert Epstein and engineer and software activist Prabir Purkayastha.

After Ebola

The world’s media extensively covered the Ebola crisis at its peak, but now the epidemic’s impact on communities in West Africa has fallen off the news agenda. And while millions of donor dollars eventually poured in to help contain and defeat the virus, its after effects – social, cultural and economic – will continue to be felt for years to come. We take a critical look at the humanitarian response and health systems deficit. Ebola is not a new disease – it’s been around since 1976 – so why did over 11,000 West Africans die 2014-16? Did we learn the right lessons from the outbreak, and, with Ebola considered endemic in the region, is Sierra Leone ready if the virus returns?
