Welcome to UNAIDS Science now and to the sixth issue of HIV this month!

This month UNAIDS together with the Center for the AIDS Programme of Research in South Africa (CAPRISA) had organized a symposium in Durban on “Scientific advances from the ‘Mississippi baby’: Implications for public health programmes on mother to child transmission of HIV”. If you recall, the “Mississippi baby” was declared functionally cured of HIV as presented at the CROI meeting in March.  A feature story of the said meeting is found here

The new WHO Consolidated Guidelines on the Use of Antiretroviral Drugs for Treating and Preventing HIV Infection has been released at the 7th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention in Kuala Lumpur on 30 June.  In this connection, we would like to share with you a News Pop on the new guidelines from the UNAIDS YouTube channel

It is also worth sharing with you our readers, that HIV this month has generated interest at the LSHTM through a monthly seminar at the university presenting the same material made available to you.

On another note, we would like to thank you for confirming your interest in continually receiving the HIV this month digests. As earlier mentioned, a survey asking you to help us how to improve both the UNAIDS Science now site and the HIV this month digest  is now on. We truly appreciate a few minutes of your time to fill in this survey here.

And lastly, do enjoy reading this month’s issue!
