In recent years, there have been remarkable developments in the treatment of AIDS and HIV. However, there remains a great deal of stigma surrounding a positive diagnosis. Aimed at the younger reader (11- to 14-years-old), this book examines the causes, symptoms and treatments for AIDS and HIV. It also looks at future developments in treatment and whether a cure might be on the horizon. The information comes from a wide range of sources and includes government reports and statistics, newspaper reports, features, magazine articles and surveys, literature from lobby groups and charitable organisations.
