Caption: AIDS memorial quilt. View of the AIDS memorial quilt, part of the "Names project" for remembering and honouring AIDS victims. A quilt is assigned to each victim with their name and insignia on it. AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) is a disorder of the immune system due to infection with HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). AIDS was first reported in 1981, and HIV was isolated in 1984. By the end of the 1980's, nearly 100,000 people in the US had AIDS and about half of them had died. The major modes of transmission are sexual contact, blood to blood, and mother to fetus. Photographed in Washington D.C.
