I knew AIDS2010 in Vienna would be a great learning experience, but I suppose I didn't expect to feel such profound gratitude for my life and my advantages. Life is such an arbitrary thing; I was born here, you were born there, she was born over there... and that simple geography equation will mean virtually everything when it comes to our human rights, our access to basic health care and services, and how long we will likely live on this planet.
In my final video blog, I introduce you to some people who were attendees as a result of scholarship programs, and I talk to the Chair of AIDS2010 about the importance of every voice being included.
I would also like to express my thanks and great respect for the editorial team from TheBody.com with whom I worked this week. You would assume that great commitment goes into the production of a web site like this one, but it was awesome watching them in action.
Thank you as always, my friends, and please be well.
