More evidence HIV/AIDS fight requires multiple approaches

Seaman A currently available pill could significantly curb new HIV infections among gay and bisexual men in the UK, if prevention and treatment programs are also expanded, researchers say. Wider use of the once-a-day pill, along with HIV blood tests and treatment among very sexually active men who have sex with men, could potentially reduce new cases by about 44 percent by 2020, researchers say. The new research shows that "combination approaches, even if implemented among only a targeted or limited population, can have a larger impact than single interventions alone," said Dr. Jason Kessler, an HIV researcher who was not involved with the new study.
