      Bio

      "How To Survive A Plague" is the untold story of the efforts that turned AIDS into a mostly manageable condition – and the improbable group of young men and women who, with no scientific training, infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, and helped identify promising new compounds, moving them through trials and into drugstores in record time. These drugs saved their lives
      and ended the darkest days of the epidemic, while virtually emptying AIDS wards in American hospitals.

      These activists’ efforts created a paradigm for patient empowerment and health care activism that has since been replicated in the fight against many other diseases from breast cancer to heart disease. And as AIDS spread to Africa, India, and Asia, these activists helped open local groups, exporting AIDS activism to press for better, and more accessible, treatment.

      Their story stands as a powerful inspiration to future generations, a road map of activism, and a call to arms. This is how you change the world.
