Effective HIV Prevention Programs Should Be Implemented More Widely in Africa, Letter to Editor Says
June 27, 2007
Although a recent Washington Post article "rightly pointed out that HIV continues to spread rapidly throughout much of Africa," it "would be a mistake to conclude that prevention programs don't work," David Serwadda and Salim Abdool Karim, both of the Global HIV Prevention Working Group, write in a Post letter to the editor. "Many HIV prevention interventions have been proved effective through rigorous scientific trials," the authors write. They add that no "single intervention is a magic bullet -- including programs to promote sexual monogamy and adult male circumcision -- but when deployed in combination, prevention efforts can have a huge impact."
