Listen to "Dr Daniel Baxter Releases One Life At A Time" on Spreaker. Daniel Baxter’s distinguished medical career has spanned the arc of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. From the first rumblings in the late 1970s to the terror of the 1980s and early 1990s to the persistence of the disease in the poor and homeless, he thought he had seen—and treated—it all. But a job offer in 2002 led him to the newest frontier in the AIDS crisis: Africa. Join Baxter on his heart-wrenching, life-changing journey in Botswana, where 24 percent of the country’s small population was infected with HIV when he arrived. With an often-wry outlook, Baxter recounts the stories of people like Ralph, a declining AIDS and cancer patient who nevertheless always wore a smile, or Precious, a woman found sick, abandoned, and hopeless. Part travelogue, part narrative of the “other,” and part witness to immeasurable suffering,One Life at a Time (Skyhorse Publishing hardcover; June 12, 2018; $25.99) tells the stories of the brave, the hopeless, and the remarkable Batswana, the people of Botswana. After eight and a half years on the front lines of the seemingly unbeatable African pandemic, Baxter realized that the only thing he could truly give his patients was precious time for them to save themselves. “One life at a time” was the only way to fight AIDS in Africa.
