AIDS: A Matter of Urgency


AIDS: A Matter of Urgency

Dr. Bill Valenti shares his memoirs of the times, patients and professionals with the world. AIDS: A Matter of Urgency is a self-published, compelling compilation of patient stories and personal reflections that chronicle the epidemic through the eyes of a front-line medical maverick.

All proceeds are donated to Trillium Health’s Fund to End the Epidemic by 2020.

We often made up the rules as we went along, using unconventional combinations of available drugs to treat patients to give them a chance to survive.
