In this course on the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the U.S., we will initially focus on the early years of the AIDS epidemic and explore how public health experts and public officials struggled to understand this mysterious disease and how societal responses were affected by prejudices and stereotypes about stigmatized groups and risks of transmission and acquisition. Do these conditions persist today? How do they affect goals to end the HIV epidemic in the United States? And how do they play out in other aspects of healthcare and the social world (e.g., politics, social relationships, religious institutions)?
