This week, the Kaiser Family Foundation held an event to discuss findings from a new survey of Americans’ attitudes towards and experiences with the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
During the event, the Kaiser Family Foundation debuted “AIDS at 30: The U.S. Epidemic,” a new video that chronicles the first 30 years of the AIDS epidemic in the U.S. In four minutes, the video highlights various milestones in the fight against AIDS.
“AIDS at 30: The U.S. Epidemic” chronicles the thirty years since the first cases of a rare pneumonia found in young gay men were reported by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. This four minute video highlights landmarks in the history of AIDS from the discovery of the AIDS virus and the banning of Ryan White from attending school to the early twenty-first century when the CDC recommends AIDS testing for virtually every American.
