First AIDS case reported in Africa. First U.S. Congressional hearings held on HIV/AIDS. "GRID" or "gay-related immune deficiency" increasingly used by the media and health care professionals, mistakenly suggesting inherent link between homosexuality and the syndrome. Gay Men's Health Crisis, the first community-based AIDS service provider in the U.S., established in New York City. City and County of San Francisco, working closely with San Francisco AIDS Foundation, Shanti Project and others, develops the "San Francisco Model of Care," which emphasizes home and community-based services. “1,112 and Counting”:  “1,112 and Counting” “If this article doesn’t scare the shit out of you, we’re in real trouble. If this article doesn’t rouse you to anger, fury, rage, and action, gay men may have no future on this earth. Our continued existence depends on just how angry you can get. I repeat: Our continued existence as gay men upon the face of this earth is at stake. Unless we fight for our lives, we shall die. In all the history of homosexuality we have never before been so close to death and destruction. Many of us are dying or already dead.” “There are now 1,112 cases of serious Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome . . .” --Larry Kramer, New York Native, 1983 1983:  1983 The U.S. Public Health Service issues recommendations for preventing transmission of HIV through sex, blood transfusions.

June 1, 1985 We recommend that health care professionals: Who are gay, come out, especially to their patients who have AIDS. Always clearly identify and discuss the theory they favor as to the cause of AIDS, since this bias affects the treatment and advice they give. Get in touch with their feelings (fears, anxieties, hopes, etc.) about AIDS, and not simply deal with AIDS intellectually. Take a thorough personal inventory and identify and examine their own agendas around AIDS. Treat people with AIDS as whole people and address psychosocial issues as well as biophysical ones. Address the question of sexuality in people with AIDS specifically, sensitively, and with information about gay male sexuality in general and the sexuality of people with AIDS in particular. Slide15:  We recommend that all people: Support us in our struggles against those who would fire us from our jobs, evict us from our homes, refuse to touch us, separate us from our loved ones, our community, or our peers, since there is no evidence that AIDS can be spread by casual social contact. Do not scapegoat people with AIDS, blame us for the epidemic, or generalize about our lifestyles. We recommend that people with AIDS: Be involved at every level of AIDS decision-making and specifically serve on the boards of directors of provider organizations. Be included in all AIDS forums with equal credibility as other participants, to share their own experiences and knowledge. Substitute low risk sexual behaviors for those that could endanger themselves or their partners, and we feel that people with AIDS have an ethical responsibility to inform their potential sexual partners of their health status. Slide16:  People with AIDS have the right: To as full and satisfying sexual and emotional lives as anyone else. To quality medical treatment and quality social service provision, without discrimination of any form, including sexual orientation, gender, diagnosis, economic status, age, or race. To full explanations of all medical procedures and risks, to choose or refuse their treatment modalities, to refuse to participate in research without jeopardizing their treatment, and to make informed decisions about their lives.

This urgency makes it hard to stand still long enough to reflect about where we are going or how we understand this brave new world . . . “But soon we experience gaping holes in our sense of reality. At first, AIDS, our dying friends, our own fears of death and illness seem unreal, and we respond by thinking, ‘If I can just get through this part, life will return to normal. As more and more friends receive various diagnosis, and we live with new fears and new needs to allocate finite time and energy, it begins to dawn on us that this is our lives now, and things will never go back to the normal we once knew.” --Cindy Patton, Inventing AIDS, 1991 1990:  1990 6th International AIDS Conference, San Francisco, CA.

Gains and Losses:  Gains and Losses We’ve made extraordinary progress in the treatment and management of HIV/AIDS, such that it’s now possible to think of chronic, manageable illness rather than immanent and invariable fatality. Treatment is better, more effective, and more accessible than ever . . . Gains and Losses:  Gains and Losses . . . but treatment is still only within the grasp of a relative few; it is still extraordinarily expensive (lifetime, $816,000); regimens are still difficult; side-effects are daunting; there are profound disparities within and between countries. Gains and Losses:  Gains and Losses AIDS activism has fundamentally changed the way we “do science” and carry out research; from the beginning, PWA/HIV activism has helped build a system of care and treatment in which people with HIV/AIDS have been viewed as active co-participants rather than treatment or research “subjects” . . . Gains and Losses:  Gains and Losses . . . but many of the early HIV/AIDS activists are no longer with us, and there is profound division—based on race, gender, geography, health status, sexual orientation, and other factors—about what the “AIDS agenda,” in 2006, is or should be. Gains and Losses:  Gains and Losses Within a relatively short period of time we built an extraordinary system of community-based care and services across the US, and in so doing substantially improved the lives of people living and affected by HIV/AIDS . . . Gains and Losses :  Gains and Losses . . . but the system of community-based HIV/AIDS care and services is showing signs, from almost every corner, of stress and localized collapse; the reasons are many, but include funding cuts, poor management, provincialism and in-fighting, and expanding service demands. Slide61:  San Francisco: “CARE Makes Cuts” (CDC, 2002) Detroit: “HIV/AIDS Organization Struggles to Survive” (Detroit Free Press, 2002) “Federal Investigation of Baltimore-Based AIDS Group Continues; Board Members Resign; Funding Threatened” (Baltimore Sun, 2004) “Whitman-Walker Clinic Closes Maryland Facility” (Washington Post, 2005) “Advocates for Youth Faces New Scrutiny” (Washington Post, 2003) “Church Will End AIDS Ministry” (Boston Globe, 2003) “Loss of Grant Will Close HIV Clinic in Zainesville” (Columbus Dispatch, 2003) “Agency Helping AIDS Patients May Close After State Pulls Funding” (Associated Press, 2004) “Idaho AIDS Group Closes Doors” (AP, 2002) Slide62:  “AIDS Group May Go Under, Says Audit” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 2004) “Local AIDS Foundation to Receive Less Funding” (Florida Times-Union, 2004) “AIDS Resource Alliance Shuts Down” (Orlando Sentinel, 2003) “Florida Clinic in Red Faces Closure” (Florida Sun-Sentinel, 2002) “AIDS Charity’s Funding at Risk; Must Put Financial House in Order” Wilmington, NC Morning Star) “East Alabama Outreach Running Out of AIDS Funds” (Associated Press, 2003) “San Francisco HIV Institute Readies to Close” (San Francisco Examiner, 2002) “David’s House is Closing It’s Doors” (Toledo Blade, 2004) “Group That Feeds AIDS Sufferers Struggling” (Columbus Dispatch, 2004) “Indiana is Asked to Repay Mismanaged AIDS Funds” (Indianapolis Star, 2002) “Cuts Threatens AIDS Shelter” (Detroit News, 2006) Slide63:  “Arkansas Health Department Audit Identifies $350,000 in Mismanaged Expenses in AIDS Division” (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) “Carrollton HIV Clinic Shut Down; Funding, Confidentiality Concerns Cited” (Southern Voice—Atlanta, 2006) “AIDS Service Organization Loses Funding” (Southern Voice, 2006) “Federal Funding Cut Threatens Southern New Hampshire AIDS Program” (Associated Press, 2006) “Funding Cut May Impact Yellowstone AIDS Project” (Associated Press, 2005) “Boston’s Ryan White CARE Act Funding Reduced by $1.1 Million This Year; 10 Programs to be Eliminated” (Boston Herald, 2005) “New Mexico AIDS Services Faces Funding Cuts” (Associated Press, 2004) “Houston Hit Hard by Cuts in Funding for HIV/AIDS” (Houston Voice, 2004) Gains and Losses:  Gains and Losses We have made significant gains in educating individuals and communities to implement strategies that will reduce their risk of infection, including sexual risk and risk related to sharing of drug injection equipment . . . Gains and Losses:  Gains and Losses . . . but in recent years prevention has been increasingly hamstrung by ideological shifts that are not based on science; syringe exchange—though proven effective and safe—still cannot be funded with federal funds; and the need for long-term community and economic change, as opposed to mere one-on-one education, has become increasingly clear. Gains and Losses:  Gains and Losses The AIDS epidemic is over. The AIDS epidemic has just begun. Recurring Themes:  Recurring Themes Human Rights Marginalization Resource Inequity and Poverty Rise and Fall of AIDS, Inc. Sexuality and Gender Prevention Technology and Vaccines Continuous Progress in Treatment Continual Increase in Numbers Losing the Access Race Individual vs. Collective/State Rights Today:  Today “If no effective vaccine or cure is found within the next 20 years, areas of the world that are now witnessing explosive epidemics or are in their second or third wave of HIV infection may find themselves harder hit—and more deeply transformed—than Europe was by the Black Death.” -Laurie Garrett, “The Lessons of AIDS,” Foreign Affairs, July/August, 2005 “It is not finished yet. There is always more and worse to fear, beyond imagination.” -Seneca (d. 65 A.D.), Trojan Women
