Today, in honor of World AIDS Day, health experts talk about where we are in the fight against this disease, from inequities to stigma to research.

Treatments, education, and research have evolved over the decades.

What advances are on the horizon?

And what challenges are still facing those who are HIV positive and the people who love them?

At the same time, we acknowledge how far we've come from awareness and education to living a full life while HIV positive.

Plus, a legal expert is here to explain what happened during today's challenge to Roe v Wade at the Supreme Court.
