abstract
This research discusses how the stigmatizing nature of sexually transmitted infections such as HIV and AIDS affects policy-making and treatment of people with the disease. In this paper I will offer evidence to support the assertion made by the Guttmacher Institute that social construction of attitudes and behaviors surrounding HIV have contributed to the understanding (or misunderstanding) of prevention and treatment of the virus. I will compare models of comprehensive sexual education programs, which effectively address the issues of safer sex and STI transmission and those that do not. I will also discuss the numerous reasons that these ineffective programs are in existence and sadly proliferate not only in the United States but also around the world, as well as studies that address the effect that these programs have had on HIV transmission and treatment of individuals infected by the virus.
