Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
Thirty years of HIV/AIDS : a personal journey / Anthony S. Fauci.
Fauci, Anthony S. National Institutes of Health (U.S.).
(CIT): Please join us for a special lecture to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the first reported cases of what is now known as AIDS, a disease that has claimed the lives of at least 30 million people worldwide. 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.
