President Bush this week appointed Edward Green, a senior research scientist at the Harvard School of Public Health, to the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV and AIDS. Green supports a comprehensive approach to sex education that stresses abstinence and faithfulness to sex partners but also recommends condom use for those who are sexually active and members of high-risk groups. In a statement, Green said, "I hope to have some influence on how we conduct AIDS prevention in the future," noting that effective prevention campaigns will be his primary focus as a council member.
