Eradication

Filed under: Uncategorized — taddaniels @ 6:01 am

Last month the American Association for the Advancement of Science met for their annual meeting. One topic covered in the gathering was the eradication of HIV/AIDS in the world. The plan called for about 3 decades of advancing science and new drugs distributed throughout the world.

This new technology and science is to be pulled from researchers and organizations both locally and international. For example, they turned to the South African Center for Epidemiological Modeling and Analysis. SACEMA has a lot of research in the field of HIV and is a huge proponent of this eradication movement.

The goal for eradication includes drugs that are being developed to take away the “contagiousness” of the disease as well as a huge campaign towards education. If either one of these is even partially attained, the battle against this epidemic would be so much closer to complete from today.

While HIV has been on the mind of epidemiologist for years, hopefully more publicity like this can give it more publicity and raise awareness to get the rest of the world, both scientific, governmental, and average, everyday people towards the fight against HIV/AIDS.

  1. Eradication of AIDS… noble goal, but is it possible? Sounds like they’re taking steps in the right direction at least.
