Efforts To ‘End AIDS’ By 2030 Off Track, International Conference Hears

Science: A campaign to end AIDS by 2030 is faltering worldwide
“The ambitious campaign to ‘end AIDS’ by 2030 is badly off track, officials said at the International AIDS Conference [in Amsterdam] last week. … [M]any countries, for a host of reasons, can’t or won’t mount aggressive responses. … The news is especially poignant given that other studies presented at the meeting underscored the power of testing and treating entire communities to dramatically slow HIV’s spread. The ‘incredible successes’ in a few countries ‘really show you what can be done with resources, focus, and partnership,’ said Chris Beyrer, an epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland…” (Cohen, 7/31).
