|You think we ever be free HIV/AIDS?
Mar 15, 2005
Hi DR Benjamin Young. I like to know if we ever going to be free from HIV/AIDS? I her they are getting very close around less then 5 years. Will it happen?
Response from Dr. Young
HIV/AIDS is not going away-- new cases continue to occur and rates have not decreased measurably in most locations. For those who are already infected with HIV, there will not be a cure or eradicative treatment.
Sorry to be gloomy, but these facts point to the need for continued efforts in prevention and better treatments.
