“There are those who support the infusion of values into the management of HIV infection. Those who have should be commended. The support of right, of ethics and morality need never to be apologized for.

“It’s now night in the slums of Calcutta and Bombay. and in the villages along the Testa in Bangladesh. It’s night in the slums of Manila and in the narrow streets and gardens of Tokyo. It’s evening on the island of Fernando Po, in the villages of northern Nigeria, and in the Qatif Oasis in Saudi Arabia. Evening falls on the cities and towns of Europe. It’s near noon in Mexico City – and it’s late morning on the Gila River Indian Reservation and here in Mesa – and the virus moves on, a virus which according to the Los Alamos National Laboratory is mutating its genetic code as much as five times faster than the influenza virus, thought until now to be the fastest mutating virus. The genes of the AIDS virus are mutating between one million and ten million times faster than the genes of human beings. This and other findings at Los Alamos cast bewildering shadows across the prospects for reliable diagnosis, broadly effective treatment, or a vaccine that will block all forms of the virus.”
