CROI 2012: HIV Medicine Association Panel


"HIVMA - HIV Medicine Association" Panel including Michael Horberg, MD, Chair Elect to HIVMA and Director HIV/AIDS, Kaiser Permanente, Rockville, MD; and Joel Gallant, MD, Vice-Chair, Infectious Diseases, HIVMA and Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD. Hosted by Fred Schaich, IFARA, Portland, OR.

Both Michael and Joel reiterate why sustaining federal funding in a time of "treatment as prevention" is so critical. They present astounding data about the small percentage of people on effective treatment today along with the science-based benefit to testing and linkage to care, geographic incidence, and healthcare reform’s effect on the patient and on providers.
