International AIDS Conference: New HIV Foundation
July 25, 2012
Timothy Ray Brown, the San Francisco resident whose HIV was apparently eradicated after a bone marrow transplant, announced Tuesday in Washington that he is launching a foundation to fund research to cure HIV/AIDS. "I am the first, and I believe the first of many people who will be cured of the AIDS virus," Brown said. "My body is proof of the concept that HIV can be cured." Brown, who spoke on the sidelines of the 19th International AIDS Conference, said he will work with the Washington-based World AIDS Institute to raise money for the research.
