We can eliminate HIV by 2030. Regular testing is a crucial part of the solution

The big announcement out of the Aids conference in Vancouver last month was that early treatment of HIV is better than delayed treatment, with half the rate of death and complications. When I was discussing it with a patient shortly after, he was surprised that this counted as news. My patient’s surprise was understandable. Current guidelines recommend early treatment, even though we didn’t have the proof. Now we have it, and this long-awaited evidence tells us more than how to treat individual patients, like the ones I work with as an HIV specialist. It tells us it’s time to talk about eliminating the virus altogether. We can do this by making annual HIV testing a standard practice.

Scientists have the tools to end the HIV epidemic; they just need better ways to use them

In the past, there was a sense that stopping the HIV/AIDS epidemic would require some radically new biomedical intervention, such as a cure or a vaccine. The growing consensus, however, is that the tools needed to stamp out HIV already exist if they could just be used in the right way.
