Lancet Examines the Implications of WHO's Updated HIV Treatment, Prevention Recommendations

March 12, 2010

A Lancet editorial reflects on the implications of the WHO's revised HIV treatment and prevention recommendations: While "[t]he revised guidelines provide a clear path to expand more effective HIV treatment and prevention globally, ... the world's appetite for further investment in HIV is perhaps at its lowest ever. The need to remain for the long haul has never been so evident, and we can only hope that global and national health and development communities have the heart to continue and deliver on their promises made for 2010 and beyond" (Crowley et al., 3/13).
