Advocating For A Cure - The AIDS Policy Project
« on: December 28, 2009, 06:16:55 PM »
The AIDS Policy Project are trying to re-introduce the idea of AIDS cure research into the national dialogue about global AIDS, and its funding as a viable public policy issue in the way that microbicides, vaccines, and other critical therapies already are.

Please consider sending this to your lists, blogging it, tweeting it, writing about it on Facebook, and talking about it.

Get The Word OUT!


Outside medical research circles, the idea of a cure for AIDS is rarely seriously discussed. Instead, AIDS is described as a "chronic, manageable disease." Try telling that to one of the 22 million Africans now suffering from it. Or the American who died of AIDS-related complications last week.

A cure for AIDS is at least as important as the next promising AIDS drug, a vaccine, or a microbicide.  But unlike other essential therapies, viral eradication—a cure for AIDS—is not supported by a special NGO or a dedicated department at the NIH.

There are no editorials in The New York Times calling for more research into HIV eradication. There is no annual research update that can be accessed by the general public, even though millions of lives are affected. Even though researchers are making important progress.

A cure could reduce US government AIDS spending by $20 billion or more per year, or by 2/3 of the entire annual budget of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

We have a plan.
Read our HIV eradication fact sheet.
Read our OpEd in the Philadelphia Inquirer

Read the Science Magazine article in which prominent US researchers and activists are calling for a New Cure Project for AIDS.
