AIDS meeting’s bottom line: Need to give more treatment
WASHINGTON – Call it a triple win for fighting the AIDS epidemic: Treating people with HIV early keeps them healthy, cuts their chances of infecting others, and now research shows it’s also a good financial investment.
The International AIDS Conference closed Friday with the message that getting treatment to more of the world’s 34 million people with HIV is key to curbing the epidemic, short of a vaccine and cure that still are years away.
“It is unacceptable” that scientifically proven treatment and prevention tools aren’t reaching people who need them most, Nobel laureate Dr. Francoise Barre-Sinoussi, co-discoverer of the AIDS virus and new president of the International AIDS Society, told the meeting’s closing session.
