Remembering 1981 - Learnings from the past

It´s 40 years since the CDC bulletin MMWR described cases of a rare lung infection in five gay men in Los Angeles. This was the first official report of what would become known as AIDS.

What reactions did the first reports of a strange, new disease generate? What can we learn from the past to meet the challenges of the future? In the theme, Remembering 1981 - learnings from the past, we have collected film clips from the archive, documentaries and essays on the HIV and AIDS pandemic.
