Our Forgotten Epidemic is a six-part series about Aotearoa New Zealand's response to HIV and AIDS, and some of the many brave individuals who changed the course of history.
There's a lot to be proud of in the response to HIV and AIDS in Aotearoa. We’ve come a long way since the early 1980s — but the mahi isn't over just yet. Since the discovery of life-saving treatment, much has happened in the HIV space. Prevention, testing, treatment, combating HIV stigma, and educating the public have never been more important. This is not the end of, or the whole story, but a beginning. In this very short series, we’ve been proud to share parts of this important legacy. Still, we know there are many more stories to tell, many other pieces of work that deserve recognition, and so many more incredible people who should be celebrated. We hope this series can be the start of bringing to light those stories yet to be told.
Our Forgotten Epidemic is produced by Wavelength Creative in collaboration with Burnett Foundation Aotearoa. Our thanks to them for allowing the series to be shared via PrideNZ.com.
