And the Band Played On
The investigation of this “emerging disease” took on major proportions. The teams’ goal was to contain it. To do this, all health professionals must investigate the distribution and the determinants of the health events.
As the investigation begins:
What is the disease? AIDS
Who is affected? Homosexual people
Where are they? Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco
When do events occur? In 1980
How does it occur?
Homosexuals in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco cities exhibit some kind of immune system failure. CDC uncovers the threat but their efforts receive poor media and government attention. CDC is poorly equipped and without funding thereby unable to carry out conclusive results. The disease spread at an alarming rate and researchers prompted the closure of saunas since that was the common meeting place for gays. The proposal was shut down but the disease then began spreading to non-homosexuals and it was then that doctors conclude that the disease was transferrable through blood. The name AIDS was quickly adopted and publicized b the media even though the government denied researches and doctors more finds to study the disease. Blood bank executives frustrated the efforts of researchers further by opposing plan to screen the nation’s blood supply.
