How AIDS Ends: An Anthology

, by San Francisco AIDS Foundation

Today San Francisco AIDS Foundation announced the publication of a unique anthology envisioning the end of AIDS. The press release is excerpted below and available in full at sfaf.org.

. . .

When the final chapter on AIDS is written, what will it look like? This provocative question is posed to 15 authors—political leaders, researchers, activists, and pioneers—in How AIDS Ends, a special anthology produced by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and featuring a foreword from President Bill Clinton.

Contributors include Timothy Brown, Jeanne White Ginder, Cleve Jones, Barbara Lee, Mark Dybul, Paul Farmer, Robert Gallo, Mervyn Silverman, Diane Havlir, Scott Wiener, LZ Granderson, Hank Plante, Eduardo Xol, and Neil Giuliano. They share their unique perspectives on the HIV/AIDS epidemic, their visions for how it ends, and who they will remember when that day comes.

“When we finally defeat this disease—hallelujah!” writes Jeanne White Ginder, mother of Ryan White. “I think on that day, I will feel that Ryan did not die in vain.”

“Now is the time to write a new chapter in the triumph of hope over despair and love over fear and hate—a new tale of the wonder of the human spirit,” writes Mark Dybul, the newly appointed executive director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

“When the AIDS epidemic ends—when we have a vaccine to prevent new infections, and everyone who has HIV can manage it with drug therapy—what a joy, what a relief,” writes Dr. Robert Gallo, co-discoverer of HIV.

How AIDS Ends is available as a digital book through Amazon and other online retailers for 99 cents. All proceeds from the book will be used to support the free HIV prevention and care services of San Francisco AIDS Foundation that improve the health of thousands of people every year….
