Salt Lake City, UT – Stan Penfold of the Utah AIDS Foundation says the awareness for AIDS may be the lowest it's been since the 1980s. Better medical treatment and an increasingly conservative social atmosphere have made the crisis somehow seem less urgent. The fact is, while 25 million people have died from AIDS related illness since the virus emerged out of obscurity, more than 40 million people carry it right now. Tuesday on RadioWest, we're examining 25 years of AIDS, its effect on the globe and the course its running in Utah.
