Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

The International AIDS Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is wrapping up. The most hopeful news at the conference is the development of a promising new category of medications called protease inhibitors. Some believe these drugs could turn HIV into a manageable rather than deadly disease, but the medication is extremely expensive and completely out of reach for the vast majority of people living with AIDS around the world.

GUEST: BOB LEDERER, Senior Editor at POZ, a magazine by for and about people living with HIV.
