Working With Persons With AIDS
By
C. Everett Koop, MD, ScD
Surgeon General
U.S. Public Health Service
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Presented to the National Management Conference of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms
Washington, DC
November 10, 1988
It had been but one day since I had last spoken to a public audience on AIDS.
Talking to the Management of the BATF was no different than talking to our own Public Health Service, when I last spoke on this general subject on the 20th of October 1988. The audience was different in that this one consisted of folks involved with three big industries in the United States, alcohol, tobacco, and firearms, and what I said to them would filter down to those companies and their respective employees. The speech I had given early on this same subject was limited to eighteen of my pages; this one was thirty-four. Everything I said to the Public Health Service in October I said here, but I added more to strengthen my positions and to be as complete as possible. For that reason there is an index included, which did not accompany the lecture to the Public Health Service employees on the occasion of Handicapped Awareness Week.
