    The beginning of the end of AIDS


    The CDD community works on web-catalyzed scientific breakthroughs to accelerate drug discovery for global human health.

    For AIDS eradication the challenge is social as much as scientific. Antiviral treatments are available and recently studies suggest they are even preventative. A small one-time investment will save lives and significant money long term. As a race, we need the strength to do the right long term action even in the face of accelerating global economic pressures.

    In an interview with Time Magazine this week, Bono (front man for U2) leaked:

    “That the Obama administration may be poised to make a big commitment to funding that could at last help curb the march of the AIDS pandemic. “We can only be hopeful, but I have a funny feeling he’s not coming to our [World AIDS Day] event empty-handed. And what we’ve asked for is a commitment to move the 4 million people who are treated today by the United States for AIDS on PEPFAR to get to 6 million by 2013,” Bono says. “We think the President is going to commit to that, and if he does I will punch the air because it literally is the beginning of the end of AIDS.”
