Access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) is increasing among the 3.4 million children living with HIV globally—though in many regions their rates of treatment access remain lower than adults. Because HIV-positive children face a lifetime of ART, adherence is critical to ensuring that they do not develop resistance, especially in countries where access to second- and third-line therapies remains limited.

Combating Anal Cancer Among HIV-Positive MSM in Asia

In 2008, the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre, a TREAT Asia network member in Bangkok, opened the Anonymous Clinic—a sexual health clinic with specific services for men who have sex with men (MSM).

It is with profound sorrow that I have received the news that Professor Joep Lange, Founder and Co-Director of HIV-NAT within the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Center, as well as the other 5 delegates, who were attending the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, passed away in the tragic crash of Malaysia Airlines MH17 in eastern part of Ukraine.

I wish to extend my heartfelt sympathy and condolences to you, and through you, to the bereaved families and all members of HIV-NAT for this irreparable loss of such the dedicated and leading figures in the AIDS research.

If you’ve been following the news lately, you may be starting to wonder why anybody ever thought curing HIV was so challenging. On March 3 we heard the news that a child appeared to have been cured. Hard on the heels of that report came the news that 14 individuals in France had been functionally cured. So what do these cases mean? How are they similar, and how do they differ? And importantly for HIV research, where do we go from here?
