Summary This programme looks at the science behind HIV and AIDS and recent developments in prevention and medication.Clint Walters learned he was HIV positive eight years ago, when he was only 17. The news shattered Clint and his family, but worse was to come. Clint's rapid progression to full-blown AIDS almost killed him. Thankfully modern combination therapies have restored Clint to almost full health. Clint meets with various top scientists to find out about the science behind HIV and AIDS. Firstly he meets Dr Michael Brady, from Kings College London, who explains why controlling HIV is so difficult and talks about the difficulties of keeping to a drug regime that lasts for life. Dr. Anton Pozniak talks about vaccine trials, whilst Prof. Jonathan Weber talks about the most recent developments in HIV prevention and the microbicide programme, which is currently being tested in Africa and the UK.
Laura Seabright is a science teacher at an inner-city school. With her top set class, she investigates HIV transmission using a practical demonstration involving milk powder and starch solution that mimics the transfer of bodily fluids. It's a tricky subject but with guidance from their teacher, the pupils handle the topic with remarkable maturity. Then after putting aside some common misconceptions about HIV and AIDS, Laura sets up a group activity where the students discuss whether funds should be spent on HIV treatment or prevention.Ralph Levinson for the Institute of Education is on-hand to offer some help dealing with these difficult issues in the classroom.
