Ending AIDS: Past, Present and Yet to Come

Presented by: 
Brian Williams South African Centre for Epidemiological Modelling and Analysis (SACEMA)
Friday 23rd August 2013 - 09:00 to 09:30
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Needs for Work on HIV and Malaria

Ending AIDS depends on the confluence of mathematics, epidemiology, public health and policy. Within ten years of the identification of the virus that leads to AIDS the key epidemiological parameters were well established. Within twenty years drugs were available to stop both disease progression and transmission. After thirty years the world still hesitates and argues about how best to proceed. We discuss what is known and what remains uncertain, areas in which more analytical work is needed, and consider briefly the politics of HIV.
