What We're Watching: CNN's Anderson Cooper to Air AIDS Special
January 13, 2011
This June, the world will mark the 30th anniversary of the first AIDS diagnosis. At this time, we didn't know what caused AIDS. Thirty years later, antiretroviral treatment has provided hope to the estimated 33.4 million people living with HIV around the world, and countless lives have been saved.

To mark this important milestone, CNN’s AC360° will air a special episode
this Friday, January 14th, at 9:00 p.m. EST. Guests include Sir Elton John
, Susan Sarandon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and other celebrity activists, some of whom have supported the Foundation and remain thoughtful voices in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
We commend Anderson Cooper for devoting a full hour of programming to explore the latest breakthroughs in the global fight to create a generation free of HIV – and discussing the challenges that remain.
We hope you can tune in.
Stephanie Bowen is the Foundation’s Director of Media Relations for the Foundation, based in Washington, D.C.
