AIDS Story on NPR

Caught the end of this report this morning:

On World AIDS Day, Awareness, Testing a Priority
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=6562444

One of the people interviewed talks about how it used to be that in certain areas, you could look on the sidewalks and shops and the face of AIDS would be obviously -- weight loss, skin lesions, etc. Now because of the proliferation of drugs that control the symptoms, help the immune system, etc., AIDS has become (at least on the surface) far less visible.
