AIDS Meeting: Link Round-Up

At the 2010 International AIDS Conference, Bill Clinton and Bill Gates urged the world to continue the progress made against the pandemic, scientists report success with a new HIV-preventive tool for women and UNAIDS reminded us that 10 million HIV-positive people who need treatment are not getting it:

  1. The two Bills called for donors to keep commitments to fund AIDS efforts and for more “efficiency” in spending.
  2. A New York Times report on new tools, efforts aimed at preventing HIV in women.
  3. Huffpo: A report on the glitz, the hope and despair of this high-profile meeting.
  4. There has been progress getting more people on treatment.
  5. This was supposed to be the year we had universal access to AIDS drugs. Here’s the UNAIDS’ assessment of where we’re at, about 10 million or so people short.
