The CDC estimates that 40 percent of the 1.1 million people with HIV are undiagnosed or not receiving medical care for the virus.
The viral suppression rate in this group was considerably higher than that seen in the same clinics a decade before.
The period from HIV diagnosis to viral suppression is tapering faster than that between infection and diagnosis.
In a study of people with a low but detectable viral load despite adherence to treatment, infected cells were apparently cloning themselves.
The largest-ever HIV prevention study found that door-to-door HIV testing, with linkage to treatment, lowered infection rates.
Ensuring health equity for all people living with HIV
Today, with better understanding of the complex task at hand, cure researchers are investigating multiple avenues and taking the long view.
These disparities are based on jurisdiction, race and transmission category.
That’s according to New York City health officials who showed that the city has made great strides on this measure.
Despite many years of enthusiastic calls for an “end to AIDS,” experts have yet to settle on what that would actually entail.
However, people with long-term suppression of HIV still have a higher risk of cancer compared with HIV-negative individuals.
A recent study found that more time spent depressed meant a greater risk of missing clinic visits, having a detectable viral load and death.
According to a recent study, such a disparity persists even when access to care for the virus is equal.
Whether or not individuals received the texting-based intervention, they wound up with the same rate of viral suppression in a recent study.
Certain subgroups of this population, such as smokers and those with depression, are less likely to have an undetectable viral load.
Monthly injections of extended-release naltrexone is linked to viral suppression among this population.
