FRONTLINE: Age of Aids Series

Lectures curated around FRONTLINE: Age of AIDS and World AIDS Day on December 1st.

Frontline presents the definitive chronicle of one of the worst pandemics the world has ever known. After a quarter century of political denial and social stigma, of stunning scientific breakthroughs, bitter policy battles, and inadequate prevention campaigns, HIV/AIDS continues to spread rapidly throughout much of the world, particularly in developing nations. Over 25 years, roughly 70 million people have been infected with the virus and 22 million have already died of AIDS. Frontline examines one of the most important scientific and political stories of our time: the story of a mysterious agent that invaded the human species and exploited its frailties and compulsions, sexual desire and drug addiction, bigotry and greed, political indifference and bureaucratic inertia, to spread itself across the globe.
