Airing two weeks from tonight on HBO. Clip recap:
Twenty years ago, HIV/AIDS was a death sentence. Now, through advances in medication, it has become a largely manageable chronic disease – and there may finally be a cure on the horizon. VICE investigates recent breakthroughs in medical science to see how close we are to life without AIDS. Hosts Shane Smith and Suroosh Alvi travel to HIV hotspots around the globe, surveying the world’s largest clinical vaccine trial from South Africa to Seattle, then finally heading to the lab of Dr. Carl June, where we see how he is editing human DNA to make cells impervious to HIV.
