Pictures From a Battlefield


Luis Lopez-Detres and Eric Sawyer  

Eric Sawyer
Sawyer (pictured with Luis Lopez-Detres, left, who has been involved with AIDS issues for the last two decades), a founding member, was symptomatic since 1980. His main concern was to steer the organization toward engaging with the housing crisis that was pushing poor people with AIDS into the streets. He co-founded the housing committee, which later became Housing Works. Today he works on AIDS issues at the U.N. “This treatment is not a cure,” he says. “And for 97 percent of people living with AIDS in the world, they have no access to the drugs at all. For them nothing has changed.”
