2 Pamphlets - "What Do We Know About AIDS?" and "Guidelines for AIDS Risk Reduction - Update"

Boston, MA: AIDS Action Committee, [1985]. A pair of pamphlets, entitled "What Do We Know About AIDS?" and "Guidelines for AIDS Risk Reduction - Update", both produced by the AIDS Action Committee, now known as AIDS Action. Original formed by Fenway Community Health as a response to the AIDS epidemic, AIDS Action has become New England's largest provider of services to both individuals living with HIV/AIDS and those at risk of infection. As both of these informational pamphlets were published before the scientific community fully understood AIDS, there isn't much information with hard scientific basis. What is notable though, is that while these pamphlets are largely aimed at homosexual men, they stress that AIDS can be transferred via sexual transmission and/or blood contact regardless of gender or sexual orientation. The Guidelines pamphlet particularly stresses that AIDS transmission is possible "through heterosexual relations. Female-to-male transmission as well as male-to-female". Additionally they make an effect to dispel some of the more erroneous assumptions about AIDS, such as that it can be transferred through physical contact such as hugging or urine contact during water sports. The backside of both pamphlets have a list of AIDS resources. Know About AIDS Measures 8 1/2" x 3 3/4" (folded), 11" x 8 1/2" (unfolded). Guidelines Measures: 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" (folded), 14" x 8 1/2" (unfolded). Crease marks.
