PBS NewsHour’s 2016 series The End of AIDS? named recipient of NAS 2017 Communication Award
Washington, DC (July 27, 2017) — The PBS NewsHour series The End of AIDS? today was named the recipient of a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine 2017 Communication Award in the Film/Radio/TV category.
Produced in collaboration with Science magazine and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the series brought viewers to six places throughout the world that represent 25% of the world’s HIV-infected population — highlighting the stunning successes already achieved, as well as the significant social, economic and political barriers that may keep the finish line beyond reach. Recently nominated for a News & Documentary Emmy Award in the Outstanding Science, Medical and Environmental Report category as well as a recipient of an Association of Health Care Journalists award in the Public Health (large) category, the series included a digital component that shows the human faces behind the policies and leads viewers to the watch all six parts.
Winners will be honored at a ceremony in DC in September.
