Washington Post Letters to Editor Criticize Dec. 1 Editorial
December 9, 2004
The Washington Post on Wednesday published two letters to the editor in response to a Dec. 1 Post editorial marking World AIDS Day. The editorial said that the decision to focus on women and girls during World AIDS Day may "turn out to be an error." The editorial said that prevention efforts instead should be on "high-risk groups" -- including injection drug users, commercial sex workers and men who have unprotected sex with men -- who are most at risk for contracting HIV and most likely to spread the disease (Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report, 12/1). Summaries of the letters appear below:
Child Marriage Puts Girls Worldwide at Risk of HIV/AIDS, Early Pregnancy; Ill. Sen. Durbin Drafts Legislation
Thailand: Book Helps Children With HIV/AIDS, Caregivers Understand Condition, Medication Regimen, Stigma
