Health Dialogues is a special series from KQED's "The California Report" that facilitates an ongoing discussion of California health care issues that are important to the underserved: children, low-income residents, minorities, and people with disabilities to name just a few.
Guest host Sarah Varney discusses how public health officials now view HIV in California as a chronic disease to be managed, if diagnosed early and treated well. The segment also explores treatment as prevention, how people are living with the disease today and which groups still aren't getting the message.Guest: Grant Colfax, MD, director of HIV Prevention and Research, San Francisco Department of Public Health.
Voices from the Community Throughout the program, we hear voices of Californians from different walks of life, each living with HIV/AIDS. Extended clips from our interviews with some of these people are featured below. Click on an image to hear more of their stories.
