The Early AIDS Epidemic in the United States: Views from Atlanta and Hollywood

01 Nov 2019

This seminar was part of the 2011 CDC-sponsored lecture series, "HIV/AIDS: 30 Years of Leadership and Lessons" and took place during the 2011 National HIV Prevention Conference, Atlanta, GA.

The program occurred on August 15, 2011.

This session will describe the early history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the USA based on Dr. Harold Jaffe and Dr. James Curran first hand recollections and experiences at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and clips from a film, "And the Band Played On," based on a book of the same name written by Randy Shilts. This session serves to illustrate the power of the epidemiologic method to understand the transmission and natural history of new infectious diseases in advance of identifying their causes.

Harold W. Jaffe, MD, MA

James W. Curran, MD, MPH
