A Worldwide Epidemic

What is your country doing to fight the spread of HIV?  In the United States, President Bush wants  Congress to double funding for HIV prevention programs, although critics complain the President wants one-third of that money to go to abstinence education.

What is the best way to prevent the spread of HIV (the virus that causes AIDS)?  Condom distribution, clean needle programs, sex education and/or abstinence education?

Or maybe it’s not really a problem?  Think again.

    I think that President Bush’s request for Congress to approve spending $30 billion over the next five years to fight aids is great as long as it goes toward educating people about the epidemic and how to prevent it, as well earmarking a percentage of the funds to be spent on research on how to obliterate the disease.

    we could.. Somehow start to quarantine everyone to an island (even though its almost impossible ) because people aren’t gunna listen or we find a cure and u gatta think if we killed everyone with aids… If it will save more lives if we can prevent it from spreading again if thats possible

    There is a simple way to prevent the spread of AIDS: Stop having sex with people you don’t know. Yeah sure we could find a cure and spend all this money trying to educate people, but it’s really up to them to make the change. People can still get AIDS through blood transfusions, but that doesn’t happen as often, especially in the US.

    Sex education is the best way. We all know that no matter the amounr of times people go out there and preach abstinence people are still gonna go out there and have sex. The best thing to do is teach them how to protect themselves and keep them aware of the possible consequences of not protecting themselves. ( which they should know already)
