Media Coverage of HIV/AIDS in Developed Countries Continues to Dip, Researchers Say

December 1, 2010

Media coverage of HIV/AIDS "has fallen by more than 70 percent in developed countries over the last 20 years," according to a group of international researchers, ANI/Sify News reports (11/30). "There is a visible downward trend of coverage on HIV/AIDS, which peaked at the end of 1991, after which coverage then dropped ... from the late 1990's onwards -- roughly one third of the levels of coverage observed in the early 1990s," the authors report in a discussion paper (.pdf) (2010). The shift in media coverage "has been largely identified in newspapers based in the developed world," ANI/Sify News writes. "Attention levels in areas that are hit hardest by the AIDS pandemic ... have remained at a high level or even increased throughout the last 20 years" (11/30).
