  • Most people think they’ll never get HIV. We spoke to two students who did

    Unless you watch Comic Relief or own Team America on DVD, chances are HIV doesn’t cross your mind that often. Yet rising rates of young gay men across the country are being diagnosed every year with the chronic illness.

  • How Much Could AbbVie Inc. Make Selling Its Hepatitis C Drug This Year?

    AbbVie has issued its guidance for 2015, and that guidance suggests that its newly launched hepatitis C drug cocktail, Viekira Pak, could be a big driver of earnings growth this year. In December, Viekira Pak received FDA approval as a treatment for hepatitis C genotype 1 after delivering compelling functional cure rates in the mid-90% range during clinical trials. That approval was highly anticipated by health care payers desperate for competition in this market, because hepatitis C market share leader Gilead Sciences' two hepatitis C drugs, Sovaldi and Harvoni, carry eye-popping price tags that are translating into billions of additional dollars in health care spending.

  • The AIDS Epidemic Can Be Ended

    Bertrand Audoin, executive director of the International AIDS Society, says: "It is crucial that pressure be stepped up on governments that, through punitive laws, continue to make the daily lives of homosexuals a nightmare. But even greater pressure can be exerted if we acknowledge that this deprivation of human rights goes beyond mere civil liberties: It is bad public health."

  • Using 'HIV-Negative' as a Substitution for 'Haven't Been Tested'

    An LGBT policy expert confronts his own fear of being tested for HIV: "Why was I so afraid to be tested? I knew enough information to understand that death was not my immediate thought. Quite frankly, though, my biggest fear was not knowing love, but more importantly, I was afraid that love would never know me. So instead of being courageous and facing those fears, I hid and wanted to believe that not knowing would be better than finding out my status."

  • HPV Vaccine Showing Successes in Australia

    The US government’s goal of vaccinating young girls against the human papillomavirus has been disappointing, with less than a third of teenagers having completed a full course of HPV vaccine.

  • Responding to the Publication of the Government's PSHE Education Review

    Personal, Social Health and Economic (PSHE) education is vital for children and young people. It is as important as reading, writing and arithmetic (and IT) yet it continues to be the 'Cinderella subject' of the school curriculum; neglected and ignored. Last month, the Government announced it would not be making PSHE education statutory in primary or secondary schools. Brook, like many organisations, believes this undermines children's rights, their health and their safety.
