IAS Report Notes Recent Gains, Future Challenges of Universal Access to HIV Care

October 29, 2010

A report (.pdf) from the International AIDS Society, titled "Universal Access: Right Here, Right Now," complies "some of the principal coverage of universal access at the XVIII International AIDS Conference, including the data, publications and presentations which served to underscore where the international community now stands in reaching the vital commitment made in 2006," according to the report. An IAS press release adds, the report "confirms that the HIV response has rapidly scaled up in recent years as a result not only of increased bilateral and multilateral funding, but also due to the reduction in the cost of treatment and the application of innovative methods of prevention," and "reveals the scale of the future challenge for HIV treatment and prevention" (October 2010).
