Speaker information

Professor Graham Hart, UCL Infection & Population Health

Prospects for preventing HIV have been boosted by data suggesting that antiretroviral treatment reduces infectivity. It is argued that treating HIV infected individuals results in lower ‘community viral load’ and fewer infections. In San Francisco new treatment policy reflects this: every person diagnosed with HIV in the city is offered immediate treatment. Can we treat our way out of the HIV epidemic? How will this affect prevention campaigns based on condom use? Is it the end of ‘safer sex’? This lecture marks World AIDS day on 1 December.
