Surgeon General C. Everett Koop HIV /AIDS Research Grant

CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR 2015‐2016 SCHOOL YEAR‐  (Deadline: November 9, 2015)
In 1986, U. S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, MD, ScD, completed a report on the growing AIDS epidemic.  He urged the federal government to expand age‐appropriate sexuality education for young people and to mount a publicity campaign about the importance of using condoms to prevent HIV transmission. Despite strong opposition, Dr. Koop moved forward with his widespread education plan.   In 1988, he prepared the pamphlet, Understanding AIDS, and sent it to nearly every household in the United States.  Those 107 million copies provided the U. S. population with plain‐spoken, non‐ judgmental, and much needed answers about AIDS transmission and prevention. This pamphlet represented the federal government’s first and only effort to reach every resident with information regarding a serious health issue.
