HIV/AIDS: It's Still Here

A Story with Hope

August 15, 2016
Danielle Etter


When I think of HIV/AIDS, the first things that come to mind are films and literature: Philadelphia, Forest Gump, RENT. I once read part of Tony Kushner’s Angels in America for a college English course. When I was 16, my sister took me to see The Phantom of the Opera in New York City, and after the show, the costumed cast stood in the lobby with buckets, taking donations for AIDS awareness. I didn’t know it was such a problem. I didn’t donate a dime.

That was 2002, only 7 years after a period...

Everything is Connected.

July 31, 2016

It’s no secret that the modern United States is lacking in its sense of community. Gone are the days of block parties, neighbors visiting on the front porch, and families helping to raise one another’s children. We’ve replaced this with the isolated new mother getting a handle on things alone in her home with only Google to help her and with neighbors hiding out, curtains drawn, preferring virtual community to flesh and blood.

We live in isolation. And we venerate the independent. It’s almost a cliché at this point.

The Most Beautiful Smile

April 12, 2010
by Caitlin McQuilling

On Saturday one of our new HIV positive patients, a tribal woman living below the poverty line in Jhabua , came into our office distraught.  She had just found out that she was accidentally pregnant, and while she and her husband had been trying for a child for a long time before they found out that they were HIV+, she was contemplating terminating the pregnancy because of her HIV+ status.  As she told us her story the sadness in the room was tangible.  She spoke in barely an audible whisper and hung her head low, staring at the ground with...
