Background material

"Sharon Stone is a Hollywood actress, film producer, and former fashion model. She is an AIDS activist and was for many years honorary chair of the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR). She replaced Elizabeth Taylor in that position. Thanks to her commitment and amfAR’s good organizational structure, Sharon has raised several hundred million dollars for AIDS research. She is a good example of how celebrities, activists, scientists and opinion makers together created the unique AIDS alliance which has influenced the world. Sharon Stone was confronted with AIDS when she played in a TV movie with Rock Hudson in 1985, shortly before he died in October 1985 and gave a human face to AIDS. In this interview she reveals for the first time this dramatic story. Sharon Stone quickly became a friend of mine and she gave her support to Face of AIDS. This interview was arranged thanks to the intervention of Harriet Wallberg-Henriksson, Sharon’s host during her visit to Karolinska Institutet." - Staffan Hildebrand
