Advertised as an easy to understand guidebook explaining what sort of disease AIDS is and how to prevent it. Author Miyazawa was the director of a hospital; Shiokawa was the chair of the AIDS task force for Japan's Ministry of Health. Preface notes that the biggest risk to spread in Japan is heterosexual intercourse - IV drugs are tightly controlled, gay culture not open - and so it is important to focus on protection. Contents: why AIDS is intractable; what sort of disease it is; how it is transmitted; what to do to prevent transmission; what the symptoms are; what treatments are available; what tests are available; what to keep in mind and do to insure a positive future.
