Surviving & Thriving: AIDS, Politics, and Culture
How much do your children know about AIDS?, 1980s
Ryan White, a boy with hemophilia who became infected with AIDS, was expelled from school in 1986. After this issue received major media attention, Americans expressed a diverse array of reactions including angry, frightened concerns for the safety of all children against this new disease that seemed to (now) have no limits. Children became a new audience for AIDS education to ensure the spread of actual information instead of fear-motivated myths.
