Sandra Thurman, director of the U.S. Office of National AIDS Policy, asserted Saturday that leadership and compassion are two key qualities for dealing with the AIDS epidemic. Speaking at the "AIDS Now and in the New Millennium" forum hosted by the National Association of People With AIDS, Thurman said that effective approaches to AIDS were being hampered nationally by complacency and internationally by denial. The national forum was held in Kansas City.
