We’re live blogging from the 2011 International AIDS Conference

By on .

Science Speaks is covering the 2011 International AIDS Conference, July 17-20 in Rome. Check out all the posts here!

Pre-meetings started Friday evening, so be sure to check out all the exciting posts, including further results reporting from the HPTN 052 trial which found that HIV-infected persons on antiretroviral therapy were more than 96 percent less likely to transmit the virus to their un-infected partners than those not on treatment.

We’ll be posting updates via Twitter as well, so be sure to follow us at @scispeaksblog.

    The WHO had intended to release guidelines for Couples’ HIV Counseling and Testing at the IAS conference. It now appears that couples’ testing will only be addressed as a peripheral effort associated with the use of ARVs in treatment and prevention. Couples testing reduces reduces HIV transmission separate and apart from ARV, yet drug companies appear to have been victorious in hijacking the couples’ HIV testing guidelines/agenda and having them modified to include/promote their products. A blog post on this unfortunate development would be most welcome.
