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.
Bruce Burnett is a name everyone should know - a name that should sit alongside all of New Zealand's heroes. Instead, until recently, his legacy seemed to be in danger of being forgotten - other than by the people he worked with, those whose lives were saved by his actions, and the organisation that now bears his name. Bruce's selfless contributions to our nation saved countless lives, and we owe it to him to remember who he was.
