Articles tagged as "HIV This Month 2015 #07 - July 2015"

Welcome to UNAIDS Science now and to the seventh issue of HIV this month in 2015!

In Ethiopia early this month, UNAIDS announced that the goal of 15 million people on life-saving HIV treatment by 2015 has been met nine months ahead of schedule. At the same time, the report How AIDS changed everything. MDG6: 15 years, 15 lessons of hope from the AIDS response was also released.

On 19-22 July, the 8th IAS Conference on HIV pathogenesis, treatment and prevention (IAS2015) happened in Vancouver, Canada. Among the notable presentations (with links to press statements and IAS videos) at the conference were the results of the Strategic Timing of Antiretroviral Treatment (START) trial, HPTN 067 daily vs nondaily dosing of PrEP among South African women (ADAPT) and HPTN 068 Conditional cash transfers on school attendance among high-school aged women in South Africa and final results from the longterm followup of HPTN052 Treatment as Prevention. A very interesting case of a French teenager who is in remission after 12 years off antiretroviral therapy was also reported. The case report was widely covered in print and broadcast media, including in Nature. Visit the IAS2015 website for more information as well as the IAS youtube channel for videos in case you missed them.

Enjoy this issue, and the rest of the summer, now that the heat wave in Europe is over (we hope)!
