AIDS and HIV Infection
AIDS and HIV Infection Foreword
As we leave the 20th century, there is still no cure in sight for one of the most frightening and devastating diseases the world has known.
HIV and AIDS continue to affect the lives of millions around the world. Until a vaccine or a cure is found, our greatest weapon against HIV/AIDS is knowledge.
To enlarge the knowledge, we must foster a work environment of compassion and understanding, not discrimination or fear.
