Rise in Number of AIDS Cases Highlights Need for Continued AIDS Education, Editorial Says

August 12, 2003

The "good news" of the success of antiretroviral drug regimens in treating AIDS "should not change the important efforts in outreach, education and treatment that have developed over the past 20 years," a Rochester Democrat and Chronicle editorial says. The perception of AIDS as a chronic and manageable illness has led to a "false sense of security" and to an increase in risky behaviors, the editorial says. Education, especially among those populations most at risk, "must continue," the Democrat and Chronicle says, concluding that educational outreach programs must be taken "directly to the people -- into the communities where having AIDS is a stigma, where poverty or drug abuse makes treatment less of a priority" (Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, 8/11).
