Thirtieth anniversary of the first reported cases of AIDS – 3
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. On the 30th anniversary of the first reported cases of AIDS, experts say the HIV/AIDS pandemic will remain one of the most serious public health crises of our time. Dr. Anthony Fauci, an institute director at NIH says more effective and affordable prevention and treatment regimens are needed.
Fauci: What we need to do is to just at this time reconfirm our commitment that there is still a long way to go, although we have accomplished much, there is still much to do, and this 30-year commemoration and anniversary should serve for us as a remembrance of what we still need to do.
