On World Hemophilia Day, we recognize and remember Corey Dubin, "who was an advocate for people with hemophilia living with HIV." "In the early days of the epidemic, Corey contracted HIV and hepatitis C through infected blood products he used to control his hemophilia. In response, he made it his life’s work to promote a conversation about the nation’s blood safety laws and regulations to prevent future HIV and hepatitis infections." #WHD2017 Please read this article by POZ about Corey Dubin's life and HIV activism from which we pulled these quotes.
