In 2006 a bittersweet historical landmark was reached--25 years of the HIV and AIDS pandemic. Many in the field took this opportunity to reflect on the advances, progress, and stalemates (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2006; Gallo, 2006; Traynor, 2006). In this column I also reflect on the 25 years of HIV and AIDS with a focus on social works' roles, past and future. In the United States, the ravages of the epidemic's early days have changed dramatically. We have gone from an epidemic disproportionately represented by white gay men to an epidemic disproportionately represented by men and women who are not white, and more specifically black and Latino men and women (Arias, 2006; Prejean, Satcher, Durant, Hu, & Lee, 2006). The devastation of the disease has also changed over the years. Now rather than seeing hospital units filled with dying men in isolation, we see a plethora of HIV rapid-testing stations and prevention and intervention programs dispersed across the country. Hopes for a medical cure have eluded scientists, and even today a cure seems outside our realm of "near-future" advents. The face of the epidemic has changed dramatically. Unfortunately, the effect of HIV and AIDS on the most marginalized groups continues to defy our best scientific efforts.
