  • 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.
