The AIDS Prevention Fund is a member of The Rubbers Bros. Reading Club and AIDS Education and Prevention Publications, with Paul Mozeleski as President. This is a small newsletter (no.1 is 8 pages) that presents brief news reports concerning AIDS throughout the world. The information is gleaned from a wide variety of publications including CDC AIDS Weekly, AIDS Alert, PWA Coalition Newsline, and Journal of Adolescent Health. Issue one includes a table that gives cumulative totals of AIDS in the United States through June, 1993; "Can there be oral transmission of AIDS?"; information from Central America, Asia, France, Italy, and Britain; "New AIDS Definition;" "Teen-age Girls have top gonorrhea rate;" "Students demand AIDS information;" "CDC to distribute additional dollars;" "What behavior puts you at risk?;" "NIH to begin vaccines on infected children;" "Army soldiers at high risk;" "AIDS in Education;" "Western Massachusetts AIDS infection rate;" and "Advice from the AIDS Prevention Fund." This is an alerting newsletter that guides individuals to the original article for the full report. The synopsis of each article is well done and provides more that enough information. Newsletters of this type are needed now more than ever and provide an excellent source for those who do not have the time to read an entire article. It is recommended for all libraries. (H. Robert Malinowsky)
