USA Today Examines Recent HIV Breakthroughs

July 18, 2012

USA Today examines several scientific breakthroughs that researchers say "could be key to reducing new HIV infections." "Doctors are hopeful not because of a single discovery, but because of a string of breakthroughs over the past two or three years, says Diane Havlir, a professor at the University of California-San Francisco," the news service writes. "The power comes from putting them together," Havlir, who is also an AIDS 2012 co-chair, said, according to USA Today. The news service discusses "landmark findings" in the areas of treatment as prevention, adult male circumcision, microbicides, and vaccines, among others (Szabo, 7/18).
