What's Next for HIV Treatment as Prevention? (Video)

August 26, 2013

"All the years we've been talking about moving [treatment as prevention] forward, I feel that from a normative perspective, we are there. The next step is we need to recruit all of those young, committed, budding investigators to work with us to do the very difficult work of the implementation science," says Julio Montaner, M.D., Clinical Director of the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS.

In this interview, Montaner, one of the leading HIV researchers and activists in the world, sits down with Fred Schaich of the International Foundation for Alternative Research in AIDS (IFARA) to discuss the implementation of treatment as prevention. They also talk about the need for researchers to be activists, as well as the need for young investigators to step up and push the HIV research field forward.
