 AIDS was first identified in the early 1980s. In the first  few years, doctors knew very little about how to treat  HIV and therefore, there was little hope for those who  were diagnosed at the time. By 1985 there were approximately 10,000 cases of  AIDS across America. Many more people were  infected with HIV.  People living with HIV were subject to extreme  discrimination from friends, family and work  colleagues.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
