Surviving and Thriving: AIDS, Politics, and Culture

The University of Arizona Health Sciences Library (UAHSL) is hosting the National Library of Medicine’s traveling exhibit, Surviving and Thriving: AIDS, Politics, and Culture. On display are six, freestanding graphic panels showing a historical look at the impact of a new, unknown disease that appeared in the United States. In the early 1980’s this “rare cancer” caused widespread fear and confusion for many, particularly among gay men as they were disproportionately affected by the unknown condition. The exhibit describes the battles people fought and the challenges they faced to overcome the social, political, and cultural backlash that came with living with the illness. It also depicts the course of action taken to achieve the successes gained for people to survive and thrive with HIV/AIDS.

This exhibition was produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health. It is on display in the library’s lobby until June 28, 2019. You can visit the online exhibit of Surviving and Thriving to locate additional digital content.
