40 Major Moments: Early History of HIV/AIDS-Online Exhibition

HONORING WORLD AIDS DAY

.
.
AIDS and HIV are indelibly etched in stone in our community so the most important thing we can do is learn, never forget the extraordinary contributions that our predecessors gave us and what they lost and sacrificed.
.
With this exhibition, we honor those who lost their lives, the fearless souls who took care of loved ones who died, the activists who stood up to indifference and cruelty, the scientists who worked tirelessly for breakthroughs, and for the allies who used their influence to make the world more compassionate for those living with AIDS/HIV.
