The face of AIDS in the United States has changed dramatically over the course of the nearly three decades since the disease was first identified. With the advent of protease inhibitors, antiretroviral therapy, and other life-sustaining medications, an HIV-positive diagnosis is no longer viewed as a death sentence (Clinton, 2003); rather, AIDS is considered more of a chronic disease, not unlike, one might argue, multiple sclerosis or diabetes: a manageable, if not curable, medical condition. But anyone making such an argument would be wrong. However, unlike other chronic diseases, HIV/ AIDS is not now, nor has it ever been, a purely medical issue; it is a social issue, a political issue, a cultural issue, an economic issue, and, perhaps above all, a personal issue. A diagnosis of HIV/AIDS invites stigma, discrimination, and blame and brings fear, anxiety, depression, and isolation. The growing prevalence of HIV/AIDS among impoverished and minority populations translates into enhanced vulnerability for already marginalized, at-risk groups. Yet, despite the multifaceted socioeconomic and psychosocial components of this disease (Bogart et al., 2000), U.S. society is tending more and more toward a purely medical perception of HIV/AIDS, a perception that threatens the role of social workers within the field of HIV/AIDS service provision. Nowhere is this trend more apparent than in the 2006 Ryan White Treatment Modernization Act (RWTMA).
