Ending this epidemic isn't just about stopping HIV, it's about really giving value and respect to sexual health and sexual well being.

At the 20th United States Conference on AIDS, Dazon Dixon Diallo, MPH, talked about how when HIV/AIDS research were in full swing 20 years ago, researchers interestingly described it as "exciting times". And, at the time, Diallo didn't understand why they'd refer to something terrifying as such. Over the years, as she sees more scientific development, she can't help but agree how "exciting" it may seem. "It makes the energy after doing all this work, renewable," Diallo said.
