Example text

TV news reporters do not even seem to be able to make up their minds about how many people have HIV and AIDS in particular African countries. 6 The Face of AIDS (ITN ‘Review of the Year’, 20 December 1986) Uganda, ‘one in every ten people has AIDS’ (BBC1 2100, 30 April 1987). Yet by 1990 ITN was reporting, without commenting on previous statements, that HIV infection was apparently much lower. In Uganda, they said, ‘one person in sixteen has the virus’ (ITN 2200, 2 January 1990). Such cavalier use of cataclysmic scenarios about the level of infection in Africa partly reflects early errors in antibody testing in Africa where false positive results were picked up from the test’s reaction to malarial plasmodium.

The work of the All Party Parliamentary Group on AIDS and its press conference on the latest figures in 1990 were important in establishing this as an epidemiological issue. See, for example, a profile of Sir (then Doctor) Donald Acheson by Thompson Prentice in The Times, 7 November 1985, which relays the views of its subject without further analysis. Interview, former medical correspondent, March 1991. Interview, gay community worker, April 1990. Interview, Tony Whitehead, July 1989. Comment from gay writer, July 1989.

The furore over ‘gay plague’ representations has tended to overlook their complete 22 AIDS, the Media and Health Policy lack of policy impact. The official consensus formed around ‘safe sex’ and ‘harm minimization’, not around quarantine or anti-gay propaganda. The role of television should be considered here. The press presentation of AIDS differed from that of television; these different sections of the media appear to have had a differential impact on the policy process.
