Danes Bring HIV to "Brink" of Elimination
« on: May 11, 2016, 01:56:02 AM »
Adherent treatment of already infected is key to elimination of HIV.

Summary:
Researchers report that global elimination of HIV is possible, if countries use the strategy planned by the World Health Organization and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS. This 'treatment as prevention' approach has brought the HIV epidemic in Denmark to the brink of elimination, the authors said after analyzing two decades of data. However, this approach will only work in other countries if almost all patients adhere to their treatment regimens.

first you have to get all PLWH actually tested and diagnosed for this strategy to work ;) Then you have to get access to healthcare/meds for all those patients. then you have to destroy all the stigma, discrimination, and poverty that interrupts treatment. only then will continued adherence solve the epidemic.
