Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer at “Science Speaks,” discusses results from a modeling study presented by Jessica McGillen of Imperial College in London at IAS 2017 on the impact of potential funding cuts on the AIDS response. In the study, “researchers used funding and demographic data from 18 representative sub-Saharan African countries and applied alternate global HIV response funding scenarios that included policies determining how the funding is spent” (8/2).
