Gov. Andrew Cuomo introduced a blue print for ending the AIDs epidemic in New York by 2020.
Speaking before an enthusiastic audience outside the LGBT Community Center in Greenwich Village , Cuomo says it’s possible to make AIDS, which has killed an estimated 153,000 New Yorkers, a disease of the past.
“Like tuberculosis, and measles and polio,” Cuomo said, to applause.
The recommendations include better testing and screening and wider distribution of drug treatments.
