High-Impact HIV Prevention

HIV ribbonThis session of Grand Rounds explored High-Impact HIV Prevention in the United States.  Because HIV incidence is stable and effective treatment exists to prevent illness and death, a growing number of persons—over 1.1 million--are living with HIV.  The growing number with the potential to transmit HIV presents a challenge for prevention.  At the same time, recent scientific breakthroughs in treatment, prevention, and monitoring disease have equipped us with an unprecedented number of effective tools to prevent infection.  High Impact HIV Prevention seeks the most effective distribution of limited resources, considering the effectiveness and cost of prevention interventions and the feasibility of full-scale implementation.

New directions in monitoring the burden of HIV and resource allocation modeling of HIV prevention interventions were presented as well as the White House’s ongoing implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy to improve HIV prevention and care.

Tentative future Grand Rounds topics include Explaining the Unexplained in Clinical Infectious Diseases, Injection Safety and Disability.
