AIDS care physicians make recommendations to Obama
Date:3/2/2009

  • Transitioning from a health emergency approach to a long-term clinical management approach in countries where large numbers of HIV-positive individuals are currently on antiretroviral therapy.
  • Investing significantly in human and financial resources to scale up HIV prevention activities in the developing world, based on scientific evidence, as well as on international policies
