Join the world's leading researchers, activists, and leaders as they mark the 25th anniversary of the first diagnosed AIDS cases with an engaging discussion about the devastating effects of the tragic auto-immune disease, and attempt to find out just what can be done to protect mankind from AIDS in the future. It's one of the greatest pandemics ever to befall man, and even in the age of modern medicine science has yet to yield a cure for the socially stigmatizing disease. By speaking with not only the experts, but the patients as well, producers hope to better educate the public about this mysterious disease while simultaneously offering hope that medicine will one day save mankind from the affliction that has claimed millions of lives.
