IN THE LIFE - December 2011
"30 Years Positive"



IN THE LIFE PREMIERES 30 YEARS POSITIVE: A Look Back At Groundbreaking HIV/AIDS Media Coverage Plus Harmony Santana & Rev. Charles King

December 1, 2011 - Tonight, public television stations across the country will begin airing 30 Years Positive, an episode of the award-winning documentary series IN THE LIFE looking back at multiple decades of media coverage of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The episode also premieres online on World AIDS Day, held annually for the global community to gather in the fight against HIV/AIDS, to show support for people living with HIV, and to remember those who have passed.

30 years after the first AIDS case was reported in the United States, more than a million Americans are HIV-positive. The most recent statistics report that one in five HIV-positive Americans don't know they are HIV-positive, and that 56,000 are newly infected each year. However, mainstream media coverage has given little attention to the epidemic's ongoing impact. Says Marjorie J. Hill, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of GMHC, in the episode: "We've been able to stabilize the HIV epidemic - not stop, not reduce - stabilize."

The episode concludes with a frank discussion about HIV prevention and the National AIDS Strategy featuring Gun Hill Road actress Harmony Santana and Reverend Charles King, CEO of Housing Works, who criticizes the White House for inaction on the epidemic, saying: "I feel that President Obama needs to be called on HIV and AIDS just like President Bush needed to be called on it."
