    Elizabeth Taylor 'ran Dallas Buyers Club-style HIV drugs network from her home'

    She was one bally broadicon_biggrin.gif

    I wish she was around today. She wasn't afraid of AIDS. It was afraid of her icon_eek.gif The drugs then barely prolonged life. But they were good for some, at least until the 'cocktail' came about.

    Liz literally provided HIV drugs. I think she's be appalled with the apathy and rancor about PrEP and ART today. I think she'd have Michael Weinstein (from AHF, the anti-PrEP proponent) for lunch, and spit him out.

    Thankfully we have Annie Lennox to continue the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Fund.

    "UNAIDS BELIEVES WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO END THE AIDS EPIDEMIC ONCE AND FOR ALL IN OUR LIFETIME.
    THE KEY TO THIS ASPIRATION IS THE 90 – 90 – 90 CAMPAIGN, WHICH WAS LAUNCHED LAST YEAR AND WHICH COUNTRIES ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE STARTING TO EMBRACE.
    NINETY PER CENT TESTED!! – NINETY PER CENT TREATED!! – NINETY PER CENT SUPPRESSED!!
    TO ACHIEVE THIS WE WILL NEED TO BE BOLD AND INNOVATIVE IN REACHING EVERYONE AT RISK WITH HIV TESTING – WE MUST ENSURE IMMEDIATE TREATMENT FOR EVERYONE WHO TESTS HIV POSITIVE AND MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE ACCESS TO THE SUPPORT SERVICES THEY NEED."

    She was awesome back in the day. Everyone forgets because now it is fashionable to wear a red ribbon and say you support AIDS causes. She was the one and only Hollywood person that stood up. Elizabeth Taylor
