Generic drugs can be repurposed to create effective treatments in unsolved diseases. However, there is no economic incentive for industry to pay for a clinical validation and regulatory approval process for most generic drug repurposing because it will not achieve the necessary ROI. Cures Within Reach, FindaCure, Numbers For Good and the National Health Service in England are working together to the create a new economic solution to this problem by piloting the first ever Rare Disease Generic Drug Repurposing Social Impact Bond (SIB). This SIB would be a “pay for success” initiative, in which investors fund the proof of concept repurposing clinical trials and the government provides a payment to the SIB for any repurposed therapies that both improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs. The government success payment would allow the SIB to repay the investors, and have additional funds for the next group of repurposing clinical trials, creating a sustainable funding source for generic drug repurposing.

HIV/AIDS Activist Denise Stokes first appeared on the "Rolonda!" TV talk show back in the '90s and reunites with Rolonda 20 years later on Ro's radio talk show, "Sundays with Rolonda." Denise contracted the AIDS virus after being raped at 13 years old. She has been a soldier in the war on HIV/AIDS ever since, spending decades raising awareness, compassion, and direly-needed dollars to help fight this deadly plague. How is Denise doing now? How is America doing now in the struggle to save lives? How far have we really come? What can we do to join this worthy cause. We will hear from Denise, as well as Sir Elton John, who just celebrated his annual AIDS Foundation Oscar Party -- and Ro was there!
