  • Starting treatment
    New START Data Fill in When to Start ART, Now the Question is How
    AVAC | 29 May 2015

    It's critical to recognize that figuring out when to start is only part of the puzzle. The question of how to start is equally critical and isn’t going to be settled by any randomized trial. The how concerns the environment in which individuals are offered treatment, the services that are part of that offer—peer support, community-based refills, non-biased provider care, among others—and the ways that the decision to start is framed.

  • Hepatitis C transmission and prevention
    Hep C… and Me?
    BETA blog | 29 May 2015

    A hookup mentioned hepatitis C. It made me question my life. Should I be getting tested for hep C? Did I need to be asking tricks about their status? Was my blissful ignorance about hep C a problem?

    Sydney Star Observer | 29 May 2015

    The high prices of medicine, which affects access to affordable medicine, was a theme of the annual World Health Assembly over the past week. In one side event, a panel discussed compulsory licensing as a vehicle to be used in combatting the high prices of medicine, not only in developing countries, but in Europe.

  • Treatment guidelines
    START findings highlight treatment divide
    Science Speaks | 28 May 2015

    The START data show that basing treatment initiation on immune cell count is a form of rationing. But whether, how soon, and even how the findings will change clinical practice is another question.

  • Global health initiatives
    The HIV 'emergency' isn't over, says PEPFAR chief
    Devex | 28 May 2015

    Australia: Victoria repeals section 19A to reduce HIV stigma in law
    Sydney Star Observer | 28 May 2015

    THE repeal of Section 19A of the Victorian Crimes Act, specifically criminalising the transmission of HIV, has passed the upper house of the Victorian Parliament with bipartisan and cross-bench support. The only law of its kind in Australia, and while 19A has never successfully been used to convict, it has widely been considered to contribute to the stigma experienced by people living with HIV.
