Researcher offers a look at HIV in India

The International AIDS Conference in Vienna wraps up tomorrow. My colleague Ruthann Richter has written about numerous developments there (her updates can be found in our HIV/AIDS category), and Kaiser Family Foundation is also offering extensive coverage of the conference.

Among today's highlights: an interview (above) with Suniti Solomon, MD, director of the Y.R. Gaitonde Center for AIDS Research and Education in India, who talks about the growing number of women contracting HIV in her country. (Forty percent of HIV patients in India are female.) She also argues that HIV treatment and prevention go hand in hand and shouldn't be separated - a belief that goes against the increasingly popular "treatment is prevention" notion that Ruthann recently wrote about.
