South Africa’s HIV treatment programme: a phoenix rising from the ashes?

In our most recent modelling study, published this week in PLoS Medicine, we have attempted to look back on what the ART programme has achieved to date – and what could have been achieved. It’s too soon to say whether progress reducing AIDS deaths has stalled, but the early signs suggest that this may be the new reality in the post-2014 period.

Transition to dolutegravir cost-effective in LMICs with high HIV drug resistance

In low- and middle-income countries, resistance to non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, or NNRTIs, is nearing and exceeding 10% in patients with HIV who are initiating or reinitiating first-line ART, according to recent data. A new modeling study showed that transitioning first-line ART from NNRTIs to dolutegravir may be a cost-effective way to reverse this increasing trend in resistance.

Australian Labor party commits to $53m plan to 'make HIV history'

People at high risk of HIV would be given cheap access to a breakthrough preventative medicine under a federal Labor plan to make Australia the first nation in the world to win the fight against the virus that causes AIDS. The opposition's $53 million plan would dramatically expand state trials of the drug PrEP until it is approved for a federal subsidy, increase funding for HIV peak bodies and tackle rising transmission rates in Aboriginal communities.

How I use Twitter in the fight against HIV

‘Ignorance = fear; silence = death’ proclaimed the poster from the radical AIDS activist group, Act Up. The image was burned into my mind, as a young gay man, recently diagnosed with HIV. I got involved in HIV charity work in 1999 because I wanted to dispel the ignorance and to end the silence that had resulted in the deaths of so many that I loved. I wanted to share intelligence, to empower people through knowledge. In 2017, social media is a vital tool in that mission.

Setting the Standard: New prevention trials in the era of oral PrEP

There’s a lot going on in the world of HIV prevention research right now. One key issue is how participants might access oral PrEP as part of HIV prevention trials. It may seem simple: trial participants have the right to the highest standard of HIV prevention and care as part of participation. But the ethics, trial design issues and the mechanisms by which interventions are provided as standard of care are quite complex. Opinions differ and politics abound.

Philanthropic Funding for HIV/AIDS Reached Highest Level to Date in 2016 According to New Funders Concerned About AIDS’ Report

HIV/AIDS-related giving among private philanthropic organizations in 15 countries totaled approximately $680 million in 2016, representing a two percent increase ($16 million) from 2015, and the highest amount of disbursements to date. This year’s uptick was driven by significant increases from several of the top 20 funders — primarily ViiV Healthcare, Aidsfonds, and Elton John AIDS Foundation (US and UK) — and carried by a $41 million increase from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, representative of its normal yearly fluctuations. However, although the report highlights an increase in total funding, the overall trend shows significant decreases from the majority of funders.

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
