Closer Look with Rose Scott

HIV activists work to spread the word about testing

June 27, 2022

Today is National HIV Testing Day. This year’s theme is “HIV Testing is self-care.” Tammy Kinney, an HIV/AIDS activist and the founder of Rural Women in Action, and Jenetter Richburg, the director of client services at AID Atlanta, discuss several topics, including prevention, testing and treatment.

We then revisit Rose’s 2017 conversation with Billy Howard. The famed Atlanta photographer recounts stories from some of the dying AIDS patients he photographed in the 1980s.
