New Delhi: June 05, 2011
For every person put on anti-retroviral drug, two more become HIV-infected. If the present rate of 7,100 new infections continues, the current prevention methods cannot stem the tide of AIDS, according to International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, a consortium working on developing prevention vaccine. “The only real hope we have of ending this pandemic is through the deployment of effective biomedical tools to block HIV transmission, such as vaccines,” it said in a statement to mark three decades of detection of HIV infection.
