The Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog examines the way Deborah Birx, former director of the United States Military Research HIV Program and nominee to lead PEPFAR, plans to address the next phase of PEPFAR: by “marrying prevention to care,” noting that this “was the ethical way to do research. By bringing treatment to trial sites they would add value from their presence, whatever the outcomes of trials…” (Barton, 2/6).
