A simple ask in 2016: the UN goal of universal HIV treatment

Last week, the working draft for 2016 UN Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS was released with only a few days for comments. Called the Zero draft, like previous statements produced every five years, it is a list of observations, comments and goals. But using the UN Statement as a platform of human rights has become disconnected from the scientific and medical advances in HIV over the last five years. 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.

MSM communities in Asia call for national PrEP strategies to prevent new HIV infections

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), the daily medication that prevents HIV infections, is efficacious and has real potential to help global and local efforts to reach prevention targets in Asia and the Pacific, according to the meeting report of “PrEPARING ASIA”, the region’s first and biggest, as well as the world’s first community-led, consultation on the rolling out of the medication. The report calls for PrEP to be included in national HIV prevention strategies, particularly for men who have sex with men (MSM) in Asia and the Pacific.

Turner and colleagues at Georgetown's Memory Disorders Program argue that the usual diagnosis of dementia in HIV patients -- HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder, or HAND -- might not be the whole picture. And if some patients present with HAND, Alzheimer's or a mixture, Turner told MedPage Today, clinicians will need to broaden their differential diagnosis to get the right therapy.

When pornography uses condoms, those watching have safer sex

Men who view more sexually explicit pornography where condoms were used were less likely to have anal sex without a condom themselves. A study shows evidence that suggests pornography can have an important protective function by encouraging men to use condoms. The research is among the first to examine the relationship between sexually explicit media and the frequency of condomless anal encounters.

The Comfort of Blaming Other People for New HIV Cases

The college student had real concern in his eyes when he asked me a question during a recent presentation at American University. “Isn’t it true,” he asked, “that the HIV epidemic continues because people who know they are positive keep infecting other people?” It is a question I have heard before, in one way or another, and it always makes me cringe. Not only does it thrust all culpability onto those living with HIV, it also promotes a narrative that being infected with HIV chemically changes our moral fiber and transforms us into abusive monsters.
