Another big headline published here in Brazil following yesterday's Truvada annoucement.

Here's the original article in English:

the article is incorrect. truvada was approved for prep yesterday. the article states that it will be approved in september. i guess they missed something.

I think you are confusing "end of AIDS" with a "cure for AIDS"

I think what the author was trying to convey is that with expanded treatment (which has been shown to have a preventative effect), combined with Truvada being used as PrEP as well as PEP there may finally be a reduction of new AIDS cases.
Don't be fancy, just get dancey
