AIDS in the UK

Virginia Berridge

Oxford University Press

In the 1990s the image of AIDS began to change. Mainstreaming and normalization continued and gathered pace as epidemiology, forecasting, and modelling cast further doubts on the immediacy of rapid heterosexual spread. Alliances shifted and the gay response to AIDS also began to fragment. The general downgrading of AIDS as a policy issue continued. One of the first decisions in the new decade was to settle a long-standing policy issue with a considerable sum of government money. An impressive coalition from all parties gathered round the specific issue of compensation. The All Parliamentary Group published a pamphlet titled ‘HIV/ATDS: Is the Heterosexual Population at Risk?.’ Issues concerning gays and haemophiliacs were discussed in this leaflet with reference to myths concerning heterosexual AIDS.
