Eradication of HIV? In the 1980s, 90s, and 2000s, who would’ve imagined this possibility? Yet with very recent advancements in antiretroviral therapy and healthcare delivery systems, epidemiological research confirms this rousing prospect!

 

I want to invite you to join me for the Eradication of HIV presentation on May 30-31 at the Humanitarian Health Conference in Kansas City.
