First up is a video featuring Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In this video, Dr. Fauci discusses the history of HIV/AIDS in the U.S.- where we've been and where we're going. He not only looks back on the epidemic but also addresses the current situation. He also reminds us that there are still 2.6 million new HIV infections a year globally and that just because there are drugs available to help treat HIV, there is "no reason at all to think, it's OK to get HIV-infected. It's not. It's a very serious disease".
Stay tuned for our post next week when we reveal the next video! Looking for other information related to 30 years of AIDS? Check out these resources .
