The Bush administration has appointed Edward Green, a senior research scientist at the Harvard School of Public Health who supports the "ABC" HIV prevention model, to the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV and AIDS, the Washington Times reports (McCaslin, Washington Times, 8/8). Green supports a comprehensive approach to HIV prevention that includes abstinence, condom use and faithfulness to sexual partners, with the latter likely being the most important, according to Green (Kaiser Daily HIV/AIDS Report, 6/23). According to the Times, Green has said that "it is not 'abstinence only' or 'condoms only.' Both are needed. There is a need for condoms if A and B fail. Some people will never change their behavior," including some high-risk groups such as sex workers and their customers. After being sworn in this week by HHS Deputy Secretary Claude Allen, Green said in a letter, "I hope to have some influence on how we conduct AIDS prevention in the future (effective prevention remains my primary focus)" (Washington Times, 8/8).
