AIDS in America : a history
From San Francisco, the epicenter of the AIDS explosion, to the Bronx, notorious for its injected drug abuse, this program examines how AIDS took hold in the U.S. during the early 1980s and the advances being made toward a cure. Noted journalist David Perlman, of the San Francisco Chronicle; pioneering epidemiologist Dr. Selma Dritz; Dr. Robert Gallo, co-discoverer of the retrovirus HIV1; Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of AIDS research in America; and others offer insights into life with AIDS, the disease's African roots, medical advances such as AZT and protease inhibitors, and the boost to AIDS awareness given by celebrities.
