The Age of Aids - Part 1 (#2412)

On the 25th anniversary of the first diagnosed cases of AIDS, FRONTLINE presents the definitive chronicle of one of the worst pandemics the world has ever known. After more than two decades of denial, stigma, policy battles, scientific research, heated debates and global education, HIV/AIDS continues to spread unabated throughout much of the world, particularly in developing nations. Through interviews with AIDS researchers, world leaders, activists and patients, FRONTLINE investigates the science, the politics and the human cost of this fateful disease, and asks: What are the lessons of the past, and what must be done to stop AIDS?
