Annotation: Current policies for intervening with respect to AIDS focus on public information, sex education, the control of blood products and blood transfusions, and voluntary testing of pregnant women along with counseling of those who are infected with HIV.
Abstract: Additional interventions include the improvement of primary health care for mothers and children, family planning efforts, promotion of the use of condoms, efforts to control drug addiction, and efforts to control sexually transmitted diseases. These efforts will be effective in achieving the cooperation of individuals by voluntary measures if they provide for the confidential handling of test results, protection against discrimination, and psychosocial and medical support. Thus, the resources for counseling and social support need to be available before other measures are taken. The most important preventive measure is the provision of information to the general public about the cause of AIDS and the method of transmission of HIV.
