Smart Investments, Partnerships Will ‘End HIV As An Epidemic’

Huffington Post: Better and Smarter Investments in the HIV Response
Mark Dybul, executive director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria

“…Scientific advances and our experience on the ground now give us the historic opportunity to end HIV as an epidemic and turn it into low-level endemicity. But to complete the job we need to be much smarter. That means investing in the right places, to make sure no one is left behind. … In the absence of a silver bullet against this modern-day plague, we can utilize the resources better by deploying all the panoply of tools we have at our disposal, from harm reduction to circumcision to making sure that all those who need it receive antiretroviral treatment. … If we galvanize ourselves around this historic moment, and act as one big human family, our children and their children will have to worry about other problems, but not HIV” (7/15).
