Recent Scientific Progress in Developing New HIV/AIDS Interventions

November 18, 2011

Kaitlin Christenson, coalition director for the Global Health Technologies Coalition, "reflects on recent progress made by the scientific community in developing new interventions to combat HIV/AIDS as a result of leadership from the U.S. government" in this ONE blog post. She highlights promising research currently underway in the areas of microbicides, treatment as prevention, oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and HIV vaccines. Christenson concludes, "The U.S. government is a leading supporter for research that has yielded many of the innovations we have today, and this support must not waiver even in the midst of today's constrained budget environment" (11/17).
