Policy implications of the AIDS deficit.
Zidovudine (AZT) usage is an even more dramatically uneven health care option.

Even the well-insured and/or very affluent are stunned.
Inclusion of AZT as a Medicaid option has been met by a number of states with reluctance, or horribly, with refusal until recently: as recently as July, 1989 there are still two states in this wealthy land where AZT simply was not available if one was poor.
