Abstract

Public health today faces a number of major crises, including environmental and toxicological health issues, serious problems of access to health services, and the spectre of AIDS. Since 1981, 6,000 New Yorkers have died from AIDS; it is estimated that 30,000 will have died by the end of 1991. Needed public health actions to combat AIDS are outlined, as well as ways to build on the heightened community interest and awareness of health issues to achieve significant advances in public health.
