The producer of a syndicated AIDS special aimed at teen-agers says the program stands to lose at least $100,000, in part because advertisers are afraid to associate themselves with the subject. "Understanding HIV: Does Teen America Know the Facts?," which airs at noon today on KABC-TV Channel 7, cost $200,000 to make but has only generated $75,000 to $100,000 in ads, said Bob Horowitz, president of the Marin County-based production company GGP, which made and distributed the program.

A two-inch cockroach scurries along the stairs and a teen-ager in a glassy-eyed daze stumbles toward the door, muttering that the cameras inside this shelter for homeless youth in Hollywood leave him no room to breathe. Inside, the heat is stifling. Actor Chad Lowe--who plays an HIV-positive teen-ager on the ABC series "Life Goes On" and who is participating in a syndicated special on AIDS aimed at teens--is rehearsing, stumbling over his lines as a packed house of teen-agers looks on.
