Mark Harrington: US Cannot Pull Back on HIV Treatment Scale Up

By on .

In this video, Mark Harrington, executive director of the Treatment Action Group, discusses the resources needed to “catch up” with the HIV epidemic and the urgency of expanding treatment to save lives. Harrington explains this pressing need in the context of a shift in US global health policy and the global economic recession.

Harrington spoke at an event in Washington last week, “Changing Course: Stemming the Deadly Twin Epidemics of HIV and Tuberculosis,”  where more than 100 HIV and TB scientists, policymakers, and advocates have come together  to discuss the future of US global health policy and potential new scientific breakthroughs in the battles against HIV and TB.
