Articles tagged as "HIV This Month 2014 #02 - February 2014"

Welcome to UNAIDS Science now and to the second issue of HIV this month 2014!

This month you might be interested in a perspective by Anthony Fauci and Hilary Marston on Ending AIDS – is an HIV vaccine necessary? in the New England Journal of Medicine. Here, they detail the many advances in the work towards an HIV vaccine.  Whereas it is vital to continue the scale up of ART delivery and the deployment of a combination of nonvaccine prevention methods, the work towards vaccine development and its eventual introduction, is equally important.

Here’s a reminder that UNAIDS first called in December 2013 for 1 March to be celebrated annually as Zero Discrimination Day. The important day is now fast approaching and the support received so far has been phenomenal. Thousands of people have joined the campaign and are lending their voices to Zero Discrimination: You can learn more about the campaign here.  

We are also looking forward to sharing with you HIV this month in French next month! We are optimistic that this will widen our reach. Help us spread the word!

And lastly, we hope you enjoy this month’s dose of HIV science!
