"Hi I am a 19 year old who is trying to get the courage to come out the my folks about this. thanks in advance."
(From: Erin)

38:12 Most people with AIDS in poor countries have much less chance of surviving than people in rich countries, while the U.S. and big pharmaceutical companies try to thwart the production of generic drugs in developing countries. How can we overcome obstacles to providing wider access to antiretroviral drugs? Anne-Christine D'Adesky, public intellectual, award winning journalist, author and filmmaker recognized for her pioneering AIDS journalism, talks about the current state of the global AIDS challenge. Her new book, "Moving Mountains: The Race to Treat Global AIDS", is the first major book about the global AIDS challenge.

D'Adesky is the maker of a golobal AIDS documentary "Pills, Profits and Protests", and founder of "We Act", Womens Equality in Access to Care and Treatment, a global HIV/AIDS initiative aimed at working with grassroots HIV positive women's and girl's groups to accelerate their access to HIV treatment. She is also author of "Under the Bone," a novel set in post-Duvalier Haiti.
