As the final segment of the multi-media collaborative project on ending AIDS, UCTV follows Dr. Diane Havlir of UC San Francisco as she and others implement the Getting to Zero SF campaign with aggressive prevention, testing and treatment of people living with HIV in her home town. She and her UCSF colleagues then bring their research and best practices to a fishing village on Mfangano Island in Kenya, where nearly one in three people is infected with HIV. This inspiring story shows how HIV can be successfully suppressed in a community, even with a prevalence rate of 30 percent.
Dr. Havlir’s work is also featured here. Special thanks to the PBS NewsHour for generously sharing its San Francisco and Africa video footage with UCTV, to the Pulitzer Center for underwriting the collaborative, and to the AIDS Research Institute at UC San Francisco for supporting this project.
