Meet the unsung Filipina who cured HIV


There are TWO filipinos in Time Magazine’s 2013 listing of the 100 most influential people in the world --- President Benigno Aquino and Dr. Katherine Luzuriaga, an unsung Filipina who cured HIV.

Luzuriaga whose father is a Filipino and who knows how to speak Filipino was part of an all-woman medical team acknowledged for the first cure of a baby with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), the cause of AIDS.

The other two members of the team, Dr. Hannah Gay of the University of Mississippi and Dr. Deborah Persaud, a virologist at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, were also included in Time’s 100.
