AIDS activist

separator

Since he first showed symptoms of AIDS in 1981, Eric has been a fighter, battling his own disease while agitating on the streets and in the halls of Congress for more research and better drugs.

Eric is a co-founder of ACT UP/New York, and director of the HIV/AIDS and Human Rights Project. He was one of five U.S. AIDS activists at the March 25-27 meeting in Geneva, Switzerland on compulsory licensing of essential medical technologies - the first time U.S. AIDS activists have attended an international meeting on trade and intellectual-property policies which affect access to lifesaving drugs.
