CAHR 2014 Theme: Turning the Tide on HIV
Human immunodeficiency virus broke the species barrier to establish a local foothold in the human population about 100 years ago. In less than a century, it swelled through widening, deepening and ever more interconnected channels to grow into a worldwide pandemic. Despite its extensive reach, new means to block and even drain channels transmitting HIV loom mistily on the horizon. The time has come to turn the tide on HIV. Preventative vaccines, treatment as prevention and HIV eradication offer new supports to buoy the social and other programs that will curb, control, and eventually end the HIV pandemic. CAHR2014 highlighted recent efforts in all streams to limit the spread of HIV, simplify treatment and make eradication a realistic goal.
