Major AIDS Forum Gets Down to Work Amid Surge of Good News
July 18, 2011
Organizers applauded recent news of antiretroviral therapy's efficacy in preventing new HIV infections during a press conference in Rome on Sunday, the opening day of the 6th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention. "This conference could well be a turnaround," said Elly Katabira, IAS president.
"Treatment is prevention, and these three studies provide the proof," said Katabira. "The results presented this week could prove today as important as the antiretrovirals breakthroughs of the mid-90s."
