HIV and AIDS could be eliminated with Aggressive use of Existing Drugs and Diagnostics

From the New Scientsit, it would be possible to perform annual tests and give existing drugs to whoever tests positive, the drugs can reduce transmission rates to 1 in 1000.

A program of HIV elimination would cost several billion per year more than current treatment but would start costing less in about 2030.





Better and cheaper treatments and diagnostics could lower the costs and make the program of eliminating HIV and AIDs an easier choice. There are complicating politics and social issues to hinder implementing this program.
