  • The CEO of HIV

    Michael Weinstein’s AIDS Healthcare Foundation treats an enormous number of patients — and makes an enormous amount of money. Is that why so many activists distrust him?

  • Complexity of health system is 'holding back progress' in HIV care

    While HIV care in England is among the best in the world, the Health and Social Care Act 2012 has created a complex and fragmented system for HIV care. Responsibility for delivering services is spread between NHS England, local NHS organisations and councils, which has made it harder for areas to make co-ordinated changes across HIV services.

  • The Future Of Investment In PEPFAR: Understanding PEPFAR’s Multiple Economic, Health, And Diplomatic Impacts

    At a time when the future of the program is in doubt due to possibly severe budget cuts to the US State Department (where PEPFAR is based) proposed by the new administration, we thought it would be an opportune moment to highlight some of the key studies we have published exploring PEPFAR’s role in fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

  • Open letter to Gilead Sciences about PrEP by EATG and the PrEP in Europe Initiative

    Please read and share this letter signed by the European AIDS Treatment Group and the PrEP in Europe Initiative (PEI), a partnership of European prevention and policy NGOs. It requests Gilead Sciences to surrender their patent of Truvada® or otherwise make it possible for Truvada or generic equivalents of it to be offered at greatly reduced prices to all European health care systems so that it can be used as HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).

  • The U.S. Should Continue Its Fight against AIDS in Children

    PEPFAR is a standout example of how to achieve great things through strategic U.S. foreign-assistance investments — and of how public–private partnerships can wed the efficiencies of the private sector with the scale and reach of the public sector. By maintaining the program’s funding — something we both advocate — the United States and this administration will be well positioned to celebrate a historic public-health achievement: the end of the AIDS epidemic for an entire generation of children.

  • Former U.S. president Bush touts signature Africa AIDS programme in Botswana

    Former U.S. President George W. Bush touted his signature aid project for Africa during a visit to Botswana on Tuesday, saying he hoped Washington would recognise its importance in saving lives threatened by AIDS.

  • Trump Sends Chilling Proposal to Congress with Deadly Proposition - Cap HIV Treatment Expansion Immediately

    President Donald Trump included a chilling proposal last week in his request for the as yet unresolved 2017 federal budget: slash funding for the wildly successful and bipartisan-backed President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) by $300 million and "begin slowing the rate of new patients on treatment in FY 17."

  • Global Fund untouched by Trump’s proposed budget cuts

    The United States will meet its commitment to the Global Fund, according to the budget blueprint which President Donald Trump sent to Congress in March. During the most recent replenishment drive for the Global Fund, the U.S., under the Obama administration, pledged $4.3 billion for 2017-2019, or $1.43 billion a year.

  • Is the Russian Federation willing and able to manage its HIV epidemic?

    In January 2017, the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation rejected a request to allocate $1.2 billion over four years for the response to HIV, citing “a lack of federal funds.” The Ministry of Health had asked for the funds in order to implement the National AIDS Strategy 2017-2020. The rejection of the funding request once again brought into question the ability and willingness of the Russian Federation to manage its serious HIV epidemic.

  • What do cuts in sexual health services mean for patients?

    In some parts of the country we heard that clinics have been closed, moved to less convenient locations or their opening hours reduced. Some clinics are being run with less consultant input, which some see as an efficiency saving but others see as a safety concern. A recent survey shows that patients with STI symptoms are finding it more difficult to access appointments within 48 hours. We were particularly concerned about cuts to health adviser posts in clinics.

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
