CDC changes HIV drug treatment policy
The government recommended for the first time that rape victims and certain other people exposed to the AIDS virus be given drugs that can keep them from becoming infected.
THE OLD WAY
Previously, the government recommended such treatment only for health-care workers accidentally exposed on the job.
SLOW TO CHANGE
European countries and other nations adopted such guidelines years ago. The CDC says it did not have the scientific evidence until now.
