Featured Podcast: Solving the HIV Treatment Adherence Enigma
An Interview With Benjamin Young, M.D., Ph.D.
Poor antiretroviral adherence is widely regarded as a leading cause of HIV treatment failure and the development of drug resistance. What we're less clear on is the precise level of adherence that a patient needs to observe in order to ensure treatment success -- and even that may be beside the point. Adherence, after all, is one of the most important end results of a complex interplay of factors affecting our patients, including the very nature of the HIV care they receive.
To better flesh out the importance of adherence in HIV care today, as well as the steps health care providers can take to increase the likelihood of treatment success in their patients, we spoke with Benjamin Young, M.D., Ph.D., the vice president and chief medical officer of IAPAC, the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care, as well as an adjunct professor at the Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver and an assistant clinical professor of medicine at the University of Colorado.
