AIDS raises a number of ethical and social problems which must inevitably be confronted by the whole community, by people with AIDS and their relatives, and by those professionally involved. This book challenges a growing polarisation of viewpoints on these issues. In contrast to the one-sided and divisive proposals of those who set civil rights against public health and vice versa, it argues for a two-pronged approach which, in the face of a virus which attacks human beings in their reproductive function, accepts both the rights of individuals to sexual self-fulfilment, and also the need to protect the unaffected from infection.
