AIDS in the UK

Virginia Berridge

Oxford University Press

The period of high-level panic among politicians and civil servants ended at the appearance of the Social Services Committee report in May 1987. Normalization brought with it also professionalization and institutionalization. This saw the expansion of paid, rather than volunteer posts, in health services and in local authorities. WHO was not, of course, the only international arena in which AIDS policies were discussed in terms of the consequent impact on UK policy development. From 1986 onward, there was a multiplication of different international and European networks getting involved. In the summer of 1987, AIDS was on the agenda of the Economic Summit in Venice and a meeting of Commonwealth heads of government in Vancouver. The ethos of anti-discrimination and individualism was also reinforced through the expansion of the annual international AIDS conferences.
