Episode 01: 21st Century Prevention

In the first episode, “21st Century Prevention,” host Ben Plumley explores the future of HIV prevention with guest, Gloria Lockett, co-founder of California’s Prostitute Education Project (CALPEP). The future isn’t just biomedical, its about incorporating new medicines and diagnostic tests into education and prevention outreach with communities most affected by HIV.

We also meet Venezuelan human rights lawyer, MaryAnn Torres, the head of ICASO, to learn more about how the political and economic crisis is having a devastating impact on the health of everyday citizens. Its a story of medicines stolen by the government, and lives put at risk.
