Living with AIDs.
Graubard, Stephen R., Ed.
Daedalus, v118 n2 Spr 1989
Because events move swiftly in the contemporary world, it is easy to forget that acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a phenomenon of the 1980s. It is generally agreed that this is only the very beginning of a scientific investigation that will go on well into the 21st century. This issue attempts to provide some of the basic information and understanding needed for an intelligent public discussion of the AIDS problem. Nine articles are included: (1) "What Is an Epidemic? AIDS in Historical Perspective" (C. Rosenberg); (2) "AIDS: The Challenge to Biomedical Research" (M. Hamburg; A. Fauci); (3) "AIDS in the United States: Patient Care and Politics" (A Ron; D. Rogers); (4) "Clinical Care in the AIDS Epidemic" (G. Friedland); (5) "Alive with AIDS" (P. Phoenix); (6) "The Power of Professionalism: Policies for AIDS in Britain, Sweden, and the United States" (D. Fox; And Others); (7) "Responding to a Pandemic: International Interest in AIDS Control" (N. Christakis); (8) "AIDS as Human Suffering" (P. Farmer; A. Kleinman); (9) "The Epidemiology and Transmission Dynamics of HIV-AIDS" (R. May; And Others). (PPB)
