Abstract

AIDS is clearly the most lethal of all the STDs. The universal adherence to 'safe' sexual practices is required in order to try to limit this epidemic. Unfortunately, the other forms of transmission of HIV, intravenous injection and via the fetal-placental circulation, have ensured that simply altering the sexual practices of society would not be sufficient to end this epidemic quickly.
