THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF THE AIDS PANDEMIC

Tuesday 27th April 4pm – 5.15pm

An online live event for teachers, students and interested parties.

The television series It’s A Sin introduced a new generation to the AIDS pandemic through drama. We want to introduce you to the real life stories of those who lived through it… and survived.

This live event provides an introduction to the history of HIV/AIDS through our speakers’ personal experiences, archive footage and filmed interviews. It will take you on a journey from the early days when HIV was a death sentence to the opening of the first specialist ward by Princess Diana; from the advent of effective medication to the present day – when HIV is considered a manageable condition.

Book your free ticket and submit questions through Eventbrite.

Speakers include Professor Jane Anderson, Chris Sandford, Winnie Sseruma, Garry Brough and Dr Jason Jones
