HIV/AIDS: Apathy Will Kill You
This is it, y’all: the season finale. This week we’re talking about HIV/AIDS, one of the biggest pandemics of modern times. We were fortunate enough to speak with three individuals who have had vastly different experiences with HIV/AIDS. Frank Iamelli, who took care of many of his friends throughout the epidemic, Hillel Wasserman, who has been living with HIV since 1987, and Brryan Jackson who was diagnosed with AIDS when he was only 5 years old. In this episode, you’ll get a glimpse into their stories and then we’ll fill you in on all of the biology, history, and present state of HIV in the world. Don’t forget to tune in next week for our special bonus episode where you will get to hear more of Frank, Hillel, and Brryan’s stories in depth. In the meantime, here are a couple of links to Brryan’s website and Being Alive LA which you’ll hear more about next week!
HIV/AIDS: Cure Research
Currently there is a lot of chatter about HIV Cure. What role do HIV positive people play in the research for a cure? Are there different types of Cures? Why would I want to participate in cure research? Realistically, how far away is a cure for HIV?These questions and so much more were discussed during the 2017 ASHM Conference in Canberra.In this podcast, recorded live on 7 November 2017, Professor Sharon Lewin from the Doherty Institute in Melbourne, discusses some of the challenges that researchers face in their search for an HIV cure. Also on the discussion panel are, Cipri Martinez, President of NAPWHA, Dr Rowena Johnston, Vice President of amfAR and Dr Robert Page, a S100 GP from Sydney. Moderating this discussion is Heath Paynter from the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations.To find out more about HIV Cure research
