HIV Pioneers: Lives Lost, Careers Changed, and Survival
Tremendous strides have been made in the prevention and treatment of HIV since the disease first appeared in the 1980s. In HIV Pioneers, Wendee Wechsberg collects 29 moving personal narratives and critical historical essays from many of the people who studied and battled the virus in the early days. These first-hand accounts not only shed light on the experiences of global health pioneers, prominent scientists, and HIV survivors, but also preserve valuable lessons for managing the risk and impact of future epidemics.
"Wechsberg has assembled many of the key players to create a verbal AIDS quilt, a tapestry rich in poignancy, wisdom, sadness, and hope." Kenneth H. Mayer, MD, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public HealthMore Info
