Abstract

In the absence of specific chemotherapy or vaccines, strategies for containing the epidemic must focus on host and environmental factors - the psychosocial front. There is ample evidence that counseling of would-be blood donors and modification of high-risk practices can prevent transmission of HTLV-III/LAV virus and slow, and eventually even reverse, the growth of the infected population.
