Thirty Years of HIV/AIDS: A Personal Journey

Dr. Anthony Fauci

Dr. Anthony Fauci

In his talk, Dr. Fauci will discuss the bleak early years of AIDS when none of his patients survived; the growing understanding that AIDS was not only affecting white gay men, but people of all ages, races, genders, and sexual orientations; the breakthrough discovery of HIV as the cause of AIDS; the development of lifesaving antiretroviral medications; work with gay activist groups, Congress, and White House administrations throughout the epidemic; progress and continued research to find new ways to prevent HIV infection and, ultimately, a cure; and the many remaining challenges.

June 5, 2011 will mark 30 years since the first cases of AIDS were reported in the U.S. On Tuesday, May 31, at 2pm ET, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will be giving a talk, “Thirty Years of HIV/AIDS: A Personal Journey.”
