Changes in statistics
Jan 16, 2002
Dr. Young; You mentioned in another response that AIDS has been an epidemic for many years but HAART therapy has only been a reality for 6 years. How have HIV-related statistics changed over the past six years? Thanks! Pam
Response from Dr. Young
There has been a dramatic decline in the death- and complication rate for persons with HIV/AIDS in North America over the past 6 years. This data was presented, in part by Dr. Palella at last years Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections. Similar decreases in complication rates have been observed over Western Europe, Canada and Australia.
