The U.S. National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) has been in place for two years, and since its release, scientific breakthroughs and new research have transformed our thinking about the US HIV epidemic. HPTN 052 and successful PrEP and microbicide trials demonstrate that biomedical interventions hold promise that were unthinkable just 2 years ago.
At the same time, Gardner and his coauthors shine a spotlight on the human factors impacting the epidemic-half of people with HIV are not in medical care, and just 1 in 4 achieves treatment success. Key researchers, including some who contributed to these breakthrough findings, will weigh in on the implications of new research on the US strategy.
This session will be immediately followed by the satellite session, "Achieving the Goals of the United States National HIV/AIDS Strategy: Next steps", organized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
This symposium is conducted in collaboration with and funded by Bristol-Myers Squibb with no editorial review of content.
