The Age of AIDS

click for video preview

Lives in Focus editors highly recommend a new documentary titled “The Age of AIDS” which is produced by Frontline, one of the world’s best television news magazine programs. The four-hour documentary is a must-see if you want a deeper understanding of this disease. The program describes itself thus:

After 25 years of political denial, social stigma, scientific breakthroughs, bitter policy battles and inadequate prevention campaigns, HIV/AIDS continues to spread rapidly throughout much of the world. Through interviews with AIDS researchers, world leaders, activists, and patients, FRONTLINE investigates the science, politics, and human cost of this fateful disease and asks: What are the lessons of the past, and what can be done to stop AIDS?

The full program will be available here beginning Friday, June 2 at 5pm New York time.

    Just ran through your site and feel that you are doing terrific work!
    I’m from Kenya and more focused on AIDS/HIV’s face there having lost two cousins from this, so this is on one hand new, to hear of it from India, and yet the problems faced are very similar, particularly cultural taboos in talking openly about this disease.
    Globally, we can only hide away from this so long before it rolls over us. Many governments, many leaders are not facing up to this at all. Two or three years ago the Kenyan vice president (Kijana Wamalwa – you can google him and even the BBC orbituary sidesteps the AIDS issue) died of AIDS (and I should say allegedly as I don’t have firsthand knowledge). Rather than seize this opportunity to talk to the whole nation at once, it was very much side stepped (although in a funny way, everyone seemed to know!)
    You are doing good, meaningful, needed work and I wish you the best in this endeavor.
