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. 
This article puts several very real faces on aging men living with AIDS.
