As a news journalist writing often on the subject of South Africa's horrifying, spiraling AIDS epidemic, I was impressed with Mr. Schoofs's grasp of the political complexities of our situation, and I greatly appreciate the attention he devoted to it.

The majority of our population is still in the grip of myth, taboo, fear, and denial on the subject of AIDS, presenting a fearsome challenge for government anti-AIDS programs in the best of circumstances.

Anything less than a totally unambiguous message to the public will only exacerbate an already desperate situation.
