Ahead of AIDS 2010, Lancet Issue Explores ARV Therapy, Gender Inequity

July 2, 2010

Looking ahead to AIDS 2010 which will be held in Vienna, Austria, July 18-23, a Lancet editorial writes that 2010 marks "the deadline set by global leaders to achieve universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, and care. Sadly, the world will not meet these ambitious goals." However, the latest issue of the Lancet "offers some new insights to progress," the editorial notes.

The journal features a series of articles, including on the effectiveness of nurse-monitored antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, the "best time to start" ARVs, and the role of gender inequity and intimate partner violence in increased incidences of HIV infection (7/3).
