The AIDS virus poses one of the most serious and challenging problems facing our society today. This volume brings together experts from the fields of medicine, sexuality, psychology, and other behavioral sciences to examine the complex issues surrounding the disease and society's misconceptions about its transmission. The book responds to the need for an interdisciplinary solution to the AIDS epidemic--an integrated biobehavioral approach to limiting the spread of the disease and educating the public about its prevention. While it is clear that advances in immunology, epidemiology, and virology have been made, these authors contend that medical science alone cannot erase AIDS. Biomedical research will need the involvement of the behavioral sciences, including human sexuality, and this work is the first step toward such a perspective, one that encompasses key social, ethical, and political issues in addition to those concerning epidemiology, prevalence, and prevention. The book is the fourth volume in The Kinsey Institute Series, which is devoted to interdisciplinary cooperation in the study of human sexuality. It will make compelling reading for all those concerned about the spread of AIDS, including health workers, sociologists, psychologists, and public health professionals and policy makers.
