This lecture is given just one day after I spoke on the subject of AIDS to the General Assembly of the Untied Nations.
This was a mixed audience therefore I had to cover the subject of AIDS as the dew covers the ground. Not only going into the
biomedical facts but also the social
implications. I needed to cover the history of the Surgeon General's report and the
efforts of government.
Indeed, if one wanted a lecture that was equivalent to " the state of our knowledge today" on AIDS, this would be
a good one to read - complete but not filled with excessive detail.
There were no things to report about AIDS in this lecture that hadn't been said before and I will not therefore repeat
here what has been done previously. Because of the general nature of this all-inclusive lecture, all of which has been said
before, there is no index.
