  • People and personal stories
    The CEO of HIV
    New York Times | 3 hours ago

    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?

  • Discrimination and the law
    Gay man sues New York museum for anti-HIV discrimination - ThinkProgress
    ThinkProgress | 3 hours ago

    After 10 years of working at New York City’s American Museum of Natural History as an IT manager, Bryan Torres has filed a federal suit against the museum for creating an intolerable hostile working environment. According to the complaint, Torres’ supervisor, Juan Montes, subjected him to ongoing harassment because of his sexual orientation and HIV status, creating “working conditions so difficult and unpleasant that a reasonable person in his shoes would have felt compelled to resign.”

  • PrEP
    PrEP 17 – The coming of age of PrEP - coming soon
    PrEPster | 5 hours ago

    This 36 minute documentary film, commissioned by PrEPster, shines a light on how PrEP has become available to thousands of people in Britain, despite the failures of the English health system.

  • PrEP
    Prescribers of PrEP don't see most patients increasing risky sexual behavior
    Eurekalert Medicine & Health | 8 hours ago

  • PrEP
    Thai HIV Advocates Drop the PrEP Ball
    AVAC | 22 hours ago

    It is astonishing that strong, albeit subtle, resistance for PrEP scale-up in Thailand comes from a few influential leaders of HIV NGOs. Small in number, these NGOs are vocal and influential. Their opinions are esteemed by government officials and fellow NGOs. The resistance is not stated in public. Most of the objections to PrEP I have heard from these individuals during backroom talks or various office meetings or private discussions. Concerns, doubts, or cautions against PrEP that are said in public were vague and ambivalent.

  • Harm reduction
    The Success of Italy’s Community-Based Approach to Naloxone
    Talking Drugs | 25 April 2017

    The provision of naloxone by community-based harm reduction services, as takes place in Italy, is highly important for reducing the harms of opioid drugs, a report suggests.

  • How HIV causes disease
    Pretreatment HIV, immune activation levels determine their persistence during treatment
    Eurekalert Inf Dis | 25 April 2017

    A study led by a Massachusetts General Hospital investigator finds that pretreatment levels of HIV and immune activation appear to determine the extent to which viral levels and inflammation persist during antiretroviral treatment.

  • Hepatitis C symptoms and diagnosis
    New Canadian guideline: No screening for hepatitis C in adults not at increased risk
    Eurekalert Inf Dis | 25 April 2017

    The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care recommends against screening for chronic hepatitis C virus in adults at low risk in a guideline published in Canadian Medical Association Journal.

  • UK health services
    Complexity of health system is 'holding back progress' in HIV care
    The King's Fund | 25 April 2017

    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.

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
