An End to AIDS by 2060?

An End to AIDS by 2060?


It's possible--if impractical and exorbitantly expensive--to effectively halt the global AIDS epidemic within 50 years, researchers at the British Columbia Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS report in the journal The Lancet. Universal HIV antibody testing for everyone on the planet and treatment for all those found to be HIV-positive would lower their viral loads, make them much less infectious, and dramatically reduce the number of new sexual transmissions of the virus. Universal treatment could cut HIV incidence by 95% within 10 years and by more than 99% within 50 years, according to a mathematical model developed by the scientists.
