HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention have improved so dramatically in recent years that the tools now exist to stop epidemics and make death from AIDS a rarity. The stories of the people in this book show the chasm that exists between the dream of ending HIV/AIDS epidemics and the reality on the ground.

Tomorrow Is a Long Time follows two dozen people over two years in Tijuana, Mexico, who were living with HIV or at high risk of infection. In Tijuana and many other cities worldwide the epidemic is concentrated in groups like men who have sex with men, transgenders, and people who inject drugs or sell sex.
