  • VRC01 antibody can delay but not prevent viral rebound after interruption of early treatment

  • Doravirine combination pill looks good for initial HIV treatment

    A single-tablet regimen containing the next-generation non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) doravirine reduced HIV viral load as much as an efavirenz-based co-formulation, but it had a more favourable side-effect profile, according to results from the DRIVE-AHEAD study presentation this ...

  • Research helps explain how vedolizumab antibody therapy leads to sustained viral remission

    HIV and its monkey cousin SIV can carry the alpha-4 beta-7 integrin receptor in their outer envelope, which helps the virus enter gut cells during early infection, according to research presented at the recent Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections ...

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

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
