effective medications created for victims to use. The main goal of this source is to explain the
important facts about aids.
This is a credible source that list factual information from the government. The source
shapes my argument by educating individuals on the topic. I will be able to use this source in
research, by using the statistics and evidence. The information from the source has supported
what I think about my topic.

immediate treatment. Arguments listed are sexual risk factors. The source is a credible

Amfar. Home. The Foundation for AIDS Research. HIV/AIDS Research.. N.p., n.d.
Web. 09 Oct 2014
Amfar lists the statistics of diagnosis and survival rate of HIV victims. The time frame
ranges from the early 1980s to the late 1980s. There is also statistics which shows the diagnosis
and survival rate of victims presently. There has been a large improvement from then to now
This is a government organization, which is a credible source. This argues with the
proposal, by challenging the different statistics provided from this and other sources. Although in
the end the main goal was to compare the survival rates of the virus of the past and present, and
see which time frame logically met the standard line of inquiry.

20 Years. The Huffington Post. TheHuffingtonPost.com, 01 Dec. 2013. Web. 09 Oct. 2014
In this article, Magic Johnson states a quote about living his life with the HIV virus. This
quote addresses the proposal. He explains when he was diagnosed with the illness there was only
one source of medication. Now there are over thirty drugs to help victims. Magic expresses the
new knowledge of healthcare providers will give victims hope of survival.
The goal of this source was to give individuals a personal insight of a person dealing with
the virus. This source is optimistically biased. Since it is a quote it comes from a personal
perspective rather than factual evidence. This source helped me elaborate on my proposal, which
has not changed. This can be used for research to show the sympathetic aspect of this condition.
This can also be used for research to compare past and present survival rates.

Mayo Clinic explains the symptoms of the HIV virus and other sexual risk factors. Some
symptoms of the illness include fever, fatigue, and cough. Some sexual risk factors are not using
protection, getting tested, or being uneducated about the illness. This may hurt the survival rate.
All of the information state3d is objective. Mayo Clinic is a medical organization, which
is reliable. The goal of the source was to give individuals an understanding of what to look for, if
at risk. This source will help people become more aware of the symptoms and sexual risk factors.

Moughty, Sarah. 20 Years after HIV Announcement, Magic Johnson


Emphasizes: I Am Not Cured PBS. PBS. 07 Nov. 2011. Web. 09 Oct. 2014.

This online source was used for visual purposes. This source contained a variety of video
footage of Magic Johnson speaking on his illness. Magic explains how there is no cure for the
virus, and how he is fighting it every day through medication. He pointed out young people and
wants to make our society more aware of the illness for prevention. Although Magic believes our
society has gotten better with the statistics and survival rates of the virus, individuals must
always get tested, protect themselves, or seek treatment.
The online source is useful, instead of stating factual information, this is idealistic for
individuals to relate to. The source is biased and opinionated. The main goal of this source is to
let individuals know how serious HIV is. Magic wants to let people know although he lives
twenty plus years with the virus, he is still infected with it. This adds to my arguments, which
using medication can improve HIV victims survival rates.
