2003 marks the twentieth anniversary of the first case of HIV-AIDS in Australia. Despite an initial climate of panic and stigmatisation, the country developed a pragmatic and innovative response to AIDS. Working from an extensive array of documents and interviews with key participants, Australia's response to the epidemic is examined to establish why it has been one of most effective responses in the world.
