"Science Speaks" Blog Highlights UNAIDS "Treatment 2015" Document
July 16, 2013
The Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog highlights a document (.pdf) released by UNAIDS on Saturday, titled "Treatment 2015," which "gathers strategies based on clinical research, mathematical modeling and on-the-ground outcomes to lay out a framework for expanded [HIV/AIDS] treatment coverage, a critical step, authors say, on a path to the end of the epidemic." Reaching the goal of 15 million HIV-positive people on antiretroviral therapy by 2015 "will mean both accelerated and adapted approaches to testing and treating people worldwide for HIV," according to the document, the blog notes (Barton, 7/15).
