Summary: All terminal diseases burden the patient and his or her family with the pain and trauma of dying, as well as the social problems of job discrimination, fear of contamination and the loss of friends.  AIDS carries an additional social stigma, as if the disease were a dirty secret rather than a deadly virus.  This program examines some of the realities:  how AIDS is actually transmitted; how many cases of infection are the result of sexually active teens believing that it can't happen to them; how vital to patients and their families community support is; and how--no matter where we live--AIDS is already affecting us all in some way.  (Grades 7-12)
