  • The end of the end of AIDS

    The Durban 2016 AIDS Conference marks the end of "ending the HIV epidemic" as a feasible goal with the tools we have. We need new and better tools. Talk of ending AIDS has led to a widespread perception in the broader health and development community that this crisis is over. It isn't.

  • Are we 'Generation Bareback'?

  • How far is reality of HIV treatment access from optimal? Study looks at preventive impact of antiretroviral therapy where waits are long, stockouts common, and status sometimes secret

    In KwaZulu-Natal, where rates of HIV are the highest in South Africa, close to a third of adults live with HIV, and only a little more than a third of adults in their working years have paying work.

Called the Zero draft, like previous statements produced every five years, it is a list of observations, comments and goals.

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.
