HIV Cure: Controversy, Consensus, and a Consortium

AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses: "In an address at the 2010 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, issued a clarion call to action. Describing research toward a cure as “high risk but very high impact,” he continued: “I feel strongly that this is a direction we should go, even though years ago this would have been unimaginable.” At amfAR, we wholeheartedly concur."

I like many, am infected. This virus mutates, fact. Is the responsible world going to take the chance and hope that this virus does not mutate into something uncontrollable or easily transmitted. Where there is a will there is a way. Sadly there is a will but not enough money being ploughed into cure research. We the sufferers seek to be unified in creating of own funding pool to address short comings as global leaders simply do not care. Hell no, maintainance drugs make a lot more money. For love of God i question who is sick me or the people that call themselves leaders or governments. The virus will continue to rule if cure research funding cannot outpace the mutations. FACT
