In a wide-ranging, impassioned press conference at the opening of IAS 2009, Hoosen Coovadia, M.D., Vuyiseka Dubula, Stephen Lewis and Julio Montaner, M.D., discuss some of the overarching themes and priorities of this year's conference, many of which focus on a desperate need to renew attention (and funding) to the precarious state of efforts to prevent and treat HIV in resource-poor countries.

The transcript of this discussion is coming soon. In the meantime, please feel free to use our audio player to listen to the discussion online.

The government isn't doing enough. People die every day because of the fear of testing positive. And what is the goverment doing? Nothing. Frankly, I don't want to pass this on to anybody, especilly my partner. Nor do I want to die from this. It just angers me to the core...

In these times of tight economics, we need to look at alternative treatment models. ANAMED from Germany has done some excellent research using moringa leaves and artemisia annua (2 plants) to treat HIV, with very promising results.
The time has come to acknowledge that alleviating human suffering must take precedence over systems.
