The TREAT Asia Report Interview: amfAR Chairman of the Board Kenneth Cole

June 17, 2014 - Kenneth Cole first joined amfAR's Board of Trustees in 1987 and became chairman of the board on World AIDS Day 2004. He is also founder and chairman of the fashion house Kenneth Cole Productions, which began using provocative media campaigns to promote HIV awareness and combat stigma in the 1980s. TREAT Asia talked with Cole about those early days of spreading awareness, how social media can increase the global impact of HIV education campaigns, amfAR's work in Asia, and its new Countdown to a Cure initiative.
