To End HIV, Existing Tools and New Interventions Are Needed, NIAID Experts Say

Ending the HIV pandemic will require optimizing existing treatment and prevention tools in addition to continued development of new interventions, experts from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases write in a new Viewpoints article published in Clinical Infectious Diseases.

Advances in biomedical research have led to the development of robust toolkits of highly effective interventions for preventing and treating HIV, including antiretroviral therapy and pre-exposure prophylaxis, write NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, FIDSA, and colleagues. But major challenges remain in closing the gaps that exist in the implementation of these interventions at all stages of the HIV care continuum. Addressing these gaps, in combination with the development of new and innovative approaches that can be readily used by people with or at risk for HIV infection, will be essential to ending the HIV pandemic, the article notes.

The CID article, “Ending the HIV Pandemic: Optimizing the Prevention and Treatment Toolkits,” is available online.
