Researchers reporting in the latest issue of Archives of Internal Medicine believe withholding HIV information is widespread. The public health message ... is that if you don't know the HIV status of your partner, you should be having safe sex" by using a condom, said the lead researcher. Dr. Michael Stein, director of HIV medical activities at Brown University Medical School in Providence, R.I. Stein wasn't the only one worried about the lack of disclosure. There's a need for greater attention lo individual personal responsibility," said Daniel Zingale, executive director of the Washington-based activist group, AIDS Action. "One of the ihings we've been concerned about this past year or so is complacency." Researchers questioned 203 HIV- positive patients getting treatment al Boston City Hospital and Rhode Island Hospital between 1994 and 1996, and 129 reported sexual activity during the previous six months. Subjects with only one sexual partner were three times more likely to have told their partners than subjects with multiple partners. Also, subjects who said they had a lot of support from their spouse were almost three times as likely to tell. Whites and Hispanics were three times as likely to tell partners as blacks. Among the sexually active palients, 46 percent were black. 23 percent were Hispanic and 27 percenfwere while. In the group, 69 percent were men. Forty-one percent were infected through injection drug use, 20 per cent were men who contracted the virus via homosexual contact, and 39 percent got HIV from heterosexual contact, researchers said. Stein noted that previous surveys of gay men reached similar findings. especially the high likelihood of disclosure to a single partner and reduced likelihood among those with multiple partners. This is not a problem of knowledge," Stein said. "People understand their HIV risk of transmission. It's been shown again and again. People are not ignorant of these subjects. This is a matter of personal responsibility." AIOS ciar warns against complacency DENVER (API—Fewer people are dying of AIDS, bul it is Infecting more women. ' more minorities and more young, gay men and the battle against the virus must continue, said President Clinton's chief advisor on AIDS policy. "It ain't over 'til it's over. and I'm here to tell you, it ain't over," said Sandra Thurman, director of tin- Office of Nalional AIDS policy. AIDS deaths nationwide have dropped by 44 percent in the first half of Ihis year, but about 40.000 people a year are newly infected with the HIV virus. Thurman said last week during the Rocky Mountain Regional Conference on HIV Disease. Many people with AIDS are living longer thanks to new drugs, but the drugs are expensive and can be hard to get, Thurman said. "Many Americans yearn to believe that the worst is behind us." she said. "Yet the sobering truth is the epidem ic is far from over." In Colorado the number of AIDS deaths has been declining for the past two years. In 1996. 270 people died from AIOS. Last year, (hat number dropped to 150, said Dr. Ken Gershman. who tracks the disease for the Colorado Departmeni of Public Health and Environment.
