Dr. Gupta talks with Sharon Stone about 30-year AIDS epidemic

June 5th marks 30 years since the first diagnosed case of AIDS.  CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta interviews actress and HIV/AIDS activist Sharon Stone, now in her 16th year as an AmFAR (The American Foundation for AIDS Research) ambassador, about her activism and provocative views as the world marks 30 years of the AIDS epidemic.  Dr. Gupta and Stone share a frank discussion on where we are now in the global fight against the disease – and the actress opens up about her own early learnings about safer sex.  An additional excerpt can be viewed here.

Dr. Gupta also interviews gay rights activist Cleve Jones in San Francisco, and spends time at Atlanta’s Ponce De Leon Clinic where he meets patients — and those who care for them.  The 30th anniversary of HIV/AIDS, the human costs of the epidemic, and how the world is doing in managing the global crisis will be explored in more detail in a special SANJAY GUPTA MD, on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5 at 7:30am ET on CNN.
