South Africa To Provide ARVs To All HIV-Positive Residents In Effort To End AIDS Epidemic

Science: South Africa’s bid to end AIDS
“…South Africa has pledged to ramp up efforts to end its massive HIV/AIDS epidemic, the world’s largest. Come September, it will offer every infected person [antiretroviral drugs (ARVs)], which both stave off disease and make people less infectious. … [T]he obstacles faced by South Africa provide a sobering reality check to the lofty, laudable aspiration of ending AIDS, a topic that promises to occupy center stage [in July] in Durban at the biannual International AIDS Conference…” (Cohen, 6/29).
