A remarkable story of courage and compassion
5B is the inspirational story of the courageous nurses and caregivers who took extraordinary steps in the early 1980s to provide unprecedented care for the patients of the first AIDS ward in the United States, at San Francisco General Hospital. 5B is available everywhere On Demand as of August 27 , 2019.
The documentary film 5B was proudly commissioned by Johnson & Johnson as part of our long-standing commitment to advocating for and supporting innovative nurses on the front lines who are caring for the most vulnerable, and transforming human health around the world. We believe their stories should be shared and their life-changing impact celebrated.
