Living With HIV

In 1987, NPR's Patricia Neighmond profiled Archie Harrison — a young man with HIV. Archie died from AIDS in August 1988, leaving behind his partner Drew. Drew has been HIV positive for years, but hasn't taken any drugs and remains healthy. This story explores the science of long-term survivors and current AIDS therapies as well as the various issues gay men face in dealing with survivorship.
