CROI 2012: Marcus Conant

Marcus Conant, MD, Chairman/Founder – Marcus Conant Foundation, and physician in private practice.

In this interview, Dr. Conant offers the story of his being one of the first HIV/AIDS physicians in the US, due to his specialty being dermatology and the initial skin manifestation of Karposi's Sarcoma, as one of the first symptoms for HIV/AIDS. He makes a strong case for full funding to "start stopping this disease" through treatment as prevention, and for the patient and provider community to become activist in demanding more from industry, regulators and government to make this happen.
