Activist Group Claims HIV Cure Is Closer Than Many Think

POZ - Treatment News: "The AIDS Policy Project, in Philadelphia, has issued a report contending that a cure for AIDS may be closer to fruition than most people think, but that poor research funding is holding it back.

“Who knows exactly what’s going on with AIDS cure research?” ask Kate Krauss, Stephen LeBlanc and John James, the activists who wrote the report. They argue that most people outside of the research community don’t know how close we may be to a cure, nor how much funding is being spent toward a cure. This includes reporters, members of Congress and the public at large."
