Many of my fellow activists were en route to the International AIDS Conference in Melbourne last week when Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot out of the sky. In an instant, the innocent passengers became casualties of a war in which they had never enlisted. Though there is little to say in the face of such senseless tragedy, I felt compelled to reflect on the response of AIDS activists over past decades to another “war”—on HIV—that has caused incredible suffering.
