2020 vision: on fighting HIV/​AIDS

“Today, around the globe, afford­able HIV/​AIDS treat­ment options exist. The chal­lenge is finding ways to deliver these treat­ments effec­tively.

“By 2020, we will have in place public poli­cies that pro­mote effec­tive delivery sys­tems. We’ll also have a greater under­standing of the shifting cul­tural norms that impact the HIV/​AIDS crisis.

“These improve­ments, along with an increase in HIV/​AIDS edu­ca­tion, will accel­erate treat­ment and pre­ven­tion efforts all over the world.

“Even more dra­mat­i­cally, there is a real pos­si­bility an HIV immu­niza­tion will be avail­able by 2020 or shortly there­after. Such a devel­op­ment will com­pletely change the HIV/​AIDS landscape.”
