The forgotten survivors of AIDS | SF Chronicle
The forgotten survivors of AIDS is a lengthy but important article, for several reasons:
- We read and write largely about fictional characters who are young, healthy, beautiful, virile.
- Any characters with AIDS are, again, often young and otherwise healthy; or young and dying.
- In the real world, for the last 35 years preventing death has seemed to be the be-all and end-all of AIDS-related research dollars, with too little consideration given to how to care for the unique needs of those who keep living.
