How AIDS Ends, a special anthology produced by San Francisco AIDS Foundation featuring a foreword from President
Bill Clinton. The book will be released in conjunction with World AIDS Day and available on Amazon.com beginning
"Each contributor to this anthology has been deeply touched by AIDS and each of them, including myself, is equally committed to realizing that joyful day when AIDS is part of our past, not our future," said
Neil Giuliano, CEO of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. "
How AIDS Ends captures this forward-thinking spirit and reminds us that when it comes to the fight against HIV/AIDS, there is no shortage of hope."
Jeanne White Ginder,
Scott Wiener, LZ Granderson,
Hank Plante, Eduardo Xol, and
Neil Giuliano. They share their unique perspectives on the HIV/AIDS epidemic, their visions for how it ends, and who they will remember when that day comes.
"When we finally defeat this disease—hallelujah!," writes
Jeanne White Ginder. "I think on that day, I will feel that Ryan did not die in vain."
"Now is the time to write a new chapter in the triumph of hope over despair and love over fear and hate—a new tale of the wonder of the human spirit," writes
Mark Dybul, the newly appointed executive director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
"When the AIDS epidemic ends—when we have a vaccine to prevent new infections, and everyone who has HIV can manage it with drug therapy—what a joy, what a relief," writes Dr.
Robert Gallo, one of the co-discoverers of HIV.
How AIDS Ends is published as a digital book and is available through Amazon and other online retailers for
99 cents. All proceeds from the book will be used to support the free HIV prevention and care services of San Francisco AIDS Foundation that improve the health of thousands of people every year.
"The themes in this book are universal, profound, and important, and we chose the low-priced digital book format to ensure access to the broadest audience possible," said Giuliano. "We are honored to have contributions from so many remarkable champions in the fight against HIV/AIDS, and we are so encouraged by early feedback that we are considering making this an ongoing project."
