Eliminating HIV/AIDS: How We’ll Get to Zero By Myles Helfand and Kellee Terrell Used with permission by The Body November 28, 2011 Read the complete article online @ The Body.com

S

ince we first learned about HIV/AIDS 30 years ago, we’ve been on a mission to destroy it. So far, the virus has eluded every one of our efforts to wipe it off the face of the earth. But we’re getting there. We don’t have a cure, and we don’t have a vaccine. But what we do have is a growing number of ideas and methods that can each do their part to control HIV. And we have a planet filled with brilliant, dedicated people who have committed their careers, and in many cases their lives, to eradicating HIV.


There are seven pieces of the puzzle. None of them are able to stop HIV on their own. But combined, they have the power to end one of the great plagues in human history, regardless of whether a true cure is discovered. The seven pieces of the puzzle are: universal treatment, universal testing, economic empowerment, needle exchange, eliminating stigma, HIV/AIDS education, and other related issues. What we teach the new generation is part of the solution, since HIV isn’t going away anytime soon. Part of the reason is simple science and the realities of how HIV works. But it also has to do with the way our society works: what we teach our children, through our words and our actions, about what matters to us and what judgments we make about others. Our children will have to clean up the messes we’ve made. That includes not just continuing, but also accelerating, the fight against HIV. And that means getting a better, more complete education about HIV than most of us got when we were younger.
