Abstract: In spite of an intense world wide effort on finding a vaccine for HIV infection, as of this writing HIV/AIDS continues to advance as a leading cause of death. Education remains the most important preventative measure today, as it was at the beginning of the pandemic. Dr. C. Everett Koop, the former Surgeon General, stated in 1988, "AIDS is preventable. It can be controlled by changes in personal behavior. It is the responsibility of every citizen to be informed about AIDS and to exercise the appropriate preventive measures (USDHHS, 1988)."
