History of AIDS

The Washington Post has a photographic history of the AIDS epidemic in the United States to mark the three decades that have passed since Robert Gallo and Luc Montagnier identified HIV as the virus that causes AIDS in 1983. It's a poignant reminder of how much this epidemic has affected our society.

Many of the iconic images of the US AIDS epidemic are there but the classic photograph above was missing. It didn't take long to find it though, at CNN: The photo that brought AIDS home.
