Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello HIV-Phobe U.K.,

Although I remain one of the most optimistic people on the planet, I'm also a realist. A cure is still nowhere in sight. We have had and continue to have many promising leads. So far, none has panned out. Additional resources and a greater sense of urgency are needed to move the process along. Prevention and treatment remain key for the moment as we become more vocal and demand action on finding a cure. Watch for news reports related to the new advocacy movement, "Campaign to End AIDS."

Stay well. Get involved. Help to End AIDS!

Dr. Bob

How come so much HIV in the world?
