Closing the Implementation Gap to Stop HIV/AIDS – 1
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Treatments to battle the HIV/AIDS epidemic have advanced significantly over the past two decades. Researchers say implementing strategies to reach certain minority populations, like those suffering from drug addiction, will help further stop the disease.
Montaner: Why are we not doing what we're supposed to be doing which is to offer treatment to the people who need treatment?
Narrator: Dr. Julio Montaner heads the International AIDS Society and serves as clinical director of a major AIDS research and treatment program in Vancouver, Canada. He makes the case for what he calls the "treatment as prevention" approach. For details on AIDS research, treatment and prevention strategies, visit www.niaid.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
