In the early 80s, a new disease appeared in San Francisco, baffling scientists and alarming the public. Since then, our understanding of HIV/AIDS has made enormous strides, with treatments and prevention making leaps and bounds too. However, these advances haven't reached everyone quite yet. In a live recording, we speak to five people who have been instrumental in shaping HIV/AIDS treatment, policy, and care in San Francisco and abroad, and ask them about the barriers that still remain today. Recorded during a live event at UCSF Alumni Weekend. Hosted by Ben Mansky and Anna Lipkin Written and produced by Ben Mansky, Anna Lipkin, Katie Cabral, Stephanie Wankowicz, Liron Noiman, and Yiqi Cao Music in this episode: Thought Bubbles by Lee Rosevere String in a Box Hundred Mile by Blue Dot Sessions Episode Art courtesy of UCSF Archives AIDS History Project
