World AIDS Day: Dec. 1, 2008
Date:11/24/2008

Statement of HIV Medicine Association (HIVMA) Chair Arlene Bardeguez, MD, MPH:

  • the reality that newly approved treatment options allow for simpler regimens with a better safety profile; and
  • the fact that states are making progress in implementing routine HIV testing in health care settings.

Our nation has made a critical and unprecedented commitment to the HIV/AIDS crisis in the developing world. That investment must continue, but the crisis a
