5B is the inspirational story of everyday heroes, nurses, and caregivers who took extraordinary action to comfort, protect, and care for the patients of the first AIDS ward unit in the United States. 5B is stirringly told through first-person testimony of these nurses and caregivers who built Ward 5B in 1983 at San Francisco General Hospital, their patients, loved ones, and staff who volunteered to create care practices based in humanity and holistic well-being during a time of great uncertainty. The result is an uplifting yet candid and bittersweet monument to a pivotal moment in American history and a celebration of quiet heroes, nurses and caregivers worthy of renewed recognition.

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
The Tennessee AIDS Advocacy Network (TAAN) is a non-partisan association of people affected by and concerned about HIV/AIDS in Tennessee.
We work in cooperation with the Tennessee Department of Health’s HIV/AIDS/STD Services Section to ensure a coordinated, compassionate, and cost-effective response to HIV/AIDS in our communities. TAAN is facilitated and supported by Nashville CARES, Tennessee’s leading community-based HIV/AIDS service organization. CARES serves as a fiscal agent for the network. TAAN members may be individuals, non-profit organizations, civic associations, and government or business entities who agree with the mission of TAAN and agree to share contact information for the purposes of communication and mobilization. The TAAN list is kept confidential and never shared with any other group or organization.
Membership in TAAN is no indication of an individual’s HIV status, whether positive or negative. HIV/AIDS affects all of us, and everyone is welcome to be a part of our work.
Our mission is to improve awareness among policymakers and the public about HIV/AIDS as a continuing public health priority within our state and the United States as a whole. Our goal is preservation, expansion, and strengthening of the safety net of HIV prevention, care, treatment, and support that addresses the needs of our fellow citizens at risk for or living with HIV and AIDS.
