Historical Materials

The library was created by the Yale AIDS Program faculty and Infectious Disease fellows. It houses a wealth of movies and must read books that will be reviewed at the HIV Training Program extracurricular gathering “ART and HIV”. The purpose of this library is bringing to life the epidemiology and the history of the HIV disease and bridging the intergenerational views in caring for HIV-infected patients.
