In the rural South, poverty, prejudice and lack of health care are exacerbating the spread of HIV, making it the epicenter of HIV/AIDS in America. William Brangham and Jason Kane, along with Jon Cohen of Science magazine, meet some who are pushing back against this stigma. This report is part of the NewsHour’s ongoing series “The End of AIDS: Far From Over,” with support from the Pulitzer Center.
