Transcript detut! B* aids hits campus 'efore Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Lakers player, announced he had H.I. V. in November '91, AIDS was mostly ignored by UH students. Junior Alyssa Julien said, "Once 'Magic' Johnson said he tested positive for HIV, students on campus began to change their 'It can't happen to me' attitude. " Junior Tawnya Mathews said, "Many sororities and fraternities on campus hold blood drives. Every fall and spring semester, M.D. Anderson hospital is contacted, and blood drives are arranged." Senior Behi Sobhani said, "After the blood is taken, the donor is given a card to fill out in private. The donor states whether the blood is usable for hu man transfusion or whether the donor gave blood under peer pressure and feels the blood is not usable." Julien said, "They are contacted after the test to let them know whether they tested positive for HIV or not." Julien said, "Many fraternities have held safe sex parties. They pass out condoms and discuss their use." Condoms were also available to students in vending machines. Mathews said, "I think it's a good idea. It isn't realistic to preach abstinence and that's it. Passing out condoms doesn't mean a person is for premarital sex, but that people will have sex and should be protected." Dr. Billie Jean Smith, director of the health center, said, "Though abstinence is the best protection against AIDS, a condom is the most practical. HIV can be transmitted through blood, semen, and cervical discharge." The incidence of HIV on UH campus was low based on the national average. "Less than 1% was found HIV positive out of 437 samples tested," Smith said. Julien said, "I've heard guys say that wearing condoms takes away from the moment. Well I say that the moment will take them away if they go without one." By Merril Baum IBelow: Masses of students donated blood. After one batch was screened, it was found that four people in that group had HIV. Right: As uncomfortable as giving blood was, nurses tried to be gentle.P/zotos by Gilbert Sifuentes. 288 Student Life Top: A lot of paperwork and explaining had to be done before any blood was drawn to ensure the comfort and security of both the donor and thr receiver.
