What is Aids? explores many of the AIDS issues and questions important to elementary school students. It provides children with a basic understanding of the body’s immune system and how that system works. It explains that the AIDS virus doesn’t “play fair,” and fools the body’s immune system into thinking the AIDS virus is not the enemy. The program also focuses on what can be done to prevent AIDS and dispels many of the myths surrounding this deadly disease. Through live-action dramatizations, many of which include the use of baseball-related analogies or animated viruses, this program prepares young people to better understand the facts about AIDS and what they can do to help prevent the spread of the disease.
