In terms of HIV care in the U.S., we've certainly come a long way in the 30 years since the virus was discovered. People with full access to care are generally living long and healthy lives, thanks to potent antiretrovirals and support from care providers, advocates and community activists alike.

However, there are still many barriers when it comes to getting patients into care and on treatment, achieving undetectable viral loads and reducing inflammation and comorbidities.

We asked some of the leading experts and advocates in HIV care what they think is the biggest obstacle we still need to overcome. These interviews were conducted at the 20th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Atlanta, Ga., earlier this year.
