HIV/AIDS and social attitudes – Josephine Estaphanos

Saturday 28th March, 16:30-17:30

In this talk, we will start by looking at some of the myths and facts before going on to explore the story of HIV/AIDS. Beginning with its origins, its progression and spread. This will lead to reflecting on how people, the press, societies and governments responded – social stigma, social attitudes, how people’s perceptions of some previously marginalised groups changed.

We will also consider how the virus was dealt with more globally. Moving on from the 1980s and bringing us up to date, finishing on the debate around PrEP (Pre-exposure prophylaxis) and whether treatment should be funded by NHS England.
