The UN estimates there are 37 million adults and more than 2 million children living with HIV and during the past year 4.9 million new people became infected with the virus. And there are still many disagreements about how to provide care for people living with the disease.

Mitch Wertlieb talks with an HIV-positive man who is part of the Vermont CARES speaker’s bureau, sharing his story with people in the community.
