A simple ask in 2016: the UN goal of universal HIV treatment

Last week, the working draft for 2016 UN Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS was released with only a few days for comments.

The bulk of the draft document could have been written at any time during the epidemic, certainly most of it could have been written in 2011. There is only one reference to dramatic changes in the WHO 2015 guidelines and only two references to PrEP.

Discovering Your Sexual Personality In a New Era of HIV

For the first time in generations, we have a chance to reclaim our sexual personality. For so long, sex brought death; now, sex can bring us to life again. Bur first, we have to re-teach our emotional brains. We have to break free from our chains and re-imagine our sexuality. How can we do this?

Where next for HIV prevention in New Zealand?

A key focus of the New Zealand Medical Journal editorial is on the continued importance of behaviour-based interventions in a world where the momentum seems to have shifted to clinic based control involving pharmaceuticals. The authors highlight the danger that the medicalization of HIV prevention could lead to a disinvestment in behaviour-based interventions, which, they imply, would not be conducive to controlling the epidemic.
