AIDS35

In 2016 we mark two anniversaries of the HIV/AIDS epidemic: the 35th anniversary of the first published reports of what would come to be called “AIDS” and the 20th anniversary of the introduction of protease inhibitors and other antiretroviral medications that rendered HIV infection a manageable chronic disease rather than a death sentence.

During the fall 2016 term, UConn will host or support several exhibits related to this anniversary:

 

 

Visual AIDS will then go on the road, appearing on the UConn Avery Point campus in the Spring 2017 term.

WNPR’s local public affairs program Where We Live devoted one show to this anniversary, including an interview with Dr. Long: http://wnpr.org/post/marking-35-years-hivaids
