AIDS lecture 10/21/87

No Time For Ignorance
The AIDS Crisis
By
C. Everett Koop, MD
Surgeon General
US Public Health Service
Presented To The St. Francis Center
Washington, DC
October 21, 1987
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.
