Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • DECEMBER 3, 1999 NEWS 13 community. "No African-American in this community should not have the education, the resources," Kendrick said. "We need to deploy our resources in a very focused way." After Brown hosts his forum next month among black leaders, Jackson Lee said Surgeon General David Satcher will lead a national summit in Houston on the issue. "I want (Satcher) to asses the work we started and see what else we need to do," Jackson Lee said. "He has committed to coming to this summit in February 2000 on HIV/AIDS. This is not going to be a one- month, two-month campaign." Mobilize like the civil rights movement On Tuesday, Satcher called on the black community to mobilize against AIDS the way it came together to fight for civil rights in the 1960s. During a teleconference beamed to traditionally black medical schools, Satcher incused on what blacks could do to slow the spread of the deadly disease in their community. Almost half of new AIDS cases in recent years have been among black men, although they make up only 13 percent of the population, Satcher said. AIDS is the leading cause of death among black men ages 25-44 and the second behind heart disease among black women in that same age group. "When you come to Atlanta you have to think about how people were mobilized during the civil rights movement," said Satcher, speaking to faculty and students at Morehouse School of Medicine there. "We need the same kind of mobilization." Satcher said he hoped the conference would help develop partnerships between black organizations that would work to spread AIDS awareness. "We need to find a way within our communities to motivate people to change their behavior," he said. "See, the government can't do that. We can't sit up there in Washington and find a way to motivate people to change their behavior. It has to be people who they respect, they trust, in their local communities." The satellite conference focused on prevention, research, the availability of safe, effective treatments and the need for adherence to those treatments. Satcher called on churches, fraternities, sororities and schools to get involved. He said the number of new AIDS cases continues to be higher among blacks because AIDS started off as a white gay male disease and most education efforts were not directed toward blacks. "I think a lot of people in the African- American community missed the first round of communication about this epidemic," Satcher said. "1 think we are paying the price now." The surgeon general, a native of Alabama, formerly headed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The Associated Press contributed to this story. Dozens of people joined o candlelight vigil and dedication of new panels to the AIDS Memorial Quilt Wednesday at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The event was one of several organized by NAMES Project Houston as a way to mark World AIDS Day. VTreatment M%43Z BOOSTING IMMUNE FUNCTION: THE NEXT STEP IN HIV THERAPY?
