Be involved at every level of decision-making and specifically serve on the boards of directors of provider organizations. Be included in all AIDS forums with equal credibility as other participants, to share their own experiences and knowledge. Substitute low-risk sexual behaviors for those which could endanger themselves or their partners; we feel people with AIDS have an ethical responsibility to inform their potential sexual partners of their health status. 1983 DENVER PRINCIPLES: RIGHTS OF PWAs: 1983 DENVER PRINCIPLES: RIGHTS OF PWAs To as full and satisfying sexual and emotional lives as anyone else.
