The History of HIV/AIDS: Remembering and Applying Lessons Learned to the Present
HIV.gov's June 5, 2018 blog reminded us that this was the day when the first AIDS cases were reported, in a CDC a Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) on five cases of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) among gay men in Los Angeles. There is value in such recollections: commemoration of loss, inspiration from struggles lost and won, and perhaps to pick up on the lessons learned and apply them to the present. It is in this spirit that HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau has produced over the years a number of resources to capture the history of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP). Below are highlights.
