  1. Changing guidelines is only one step in the right direction in the fight against HIV in developing Countries.

    In order to achieve the 2025 death rate target Gov, NGO’s & AID Agencies need to ensure funding of treatment & point of care testing are prioritised & maintained / increased.

    The Pharma Co’s must also respond in making available newer & novel treatments are affordable to poorer countries & allowing newer drugs to enter the Patent Pool for resource poor Countries

    Here in the UK we are incredibly fortunate to have the best HIV care & treatment in the World & access to the most up to date treatment options.

    Given the Global austerity measures the Pharma Co’s also need to work with healthcare systems to ensure new & novel treatments are available at competitive prices, particularly when the widespread use of generics is just around the corner both here in the UK & in the States.

    There is much yet to do in the Global fight against HIV, but this is a step in the right direction

    Interesting that this article attracts so few comments. Yet again evidence that HIV/AIDS has fallen off the gay radar.

      Not at all
      It is an article of statement – there’s very little to debate about it
      I suggest that’s the reason there are so few comments

  3. Interesting how this article has attracted so few comments. Yet again an indication of how HIV/AIDS has fallen off the gay radar….

    Long overdue. I trust the NHS will be adopting the new guidelines without lengthy delay.
