The National Commission on AIDS
Goldman, Donald S.
Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal. 1991 Dec; 1(4): 339-345.
Ethical issues are at the heart of many of the controversial AIDS policy topics under consideration by the National Commission on AIDS. The threat that HIV poses to society, uncertainties about the modes of transmission, and its association with sexuality, drug use and marginalized individuals, make it exceedingly difficult to engage in the kind of dispassionate analysis that sorts out principle from prejudice and basic values from expedient policies. In the search for a consensus on sound AIDS policy, it is just this sort of analysis to which the National Commission on AIDS is seeking to contribute.
