Podcast Interview Patricia Kennedy OAM When HIV first came to Australia Featured

The Story of Patricia PodcastDrew Browne Director of Sapience Financial and Investment Services interviewed Ms Patricia Kennedy OAM about her experiences in the 1980s and 1990s when HIV and AIDS first arrived in Australia.

An engaging and challenging, sometimes confronting conversation, this interview provides first-hand accounts about the missing generation from the 1990s that saw 1000 people a year die of AIDS

This series seeks to document with insight the humanity and the history of the lives lost in Australia just before the advent of mass access to the internet and its ability to record life (and death) as it really happened.

This is the history of many Australian young people too quickly forgotten.
