Chronic Disease and Disadvantage: The New Politics of HIV Infection
Fox, Daniel M.
Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law. 1990 Summer; 15(2): 341-355.
...The politics of the HIV epidemic in the 1980s were dominated by four interacting factors...This paper analyzes the political history of each of these factors and describes the dominant policies of the federal government and the states regarding HIV in the areas of surveillance, prevention, research, and financing. Four uncertainties will have a profound influence on the future politics of the HIV epidemic: how the states and the federal government will address the general problems of paying for the care of people with chronic diseases and providing access to care for the uninsured and the underinsured; the number and distribution of the sexual behaviors that transmit infection with HIV and the effectiveness of policies to persuade people to modify these behaviors; precisely who uses addictive drugs and the effectiveness of measures to change their behavior; and the natural history of the virus.
