, in Vancouver, about activism, the future of HIV and why there's still no cure -- as well as answering questions submitted by our readers on Twitter.
At the beginning, the epidemic was in San Francisco in the gay community. How have you seen this change over time?
The epidemic changed in the gay population, for example, because they were very well informed and starting to protect themselves against the infection.

I am a little bit worried that we'll start to have the same profile of the epidemic that we were having in the early 80s.
