Lancet Infectious Diseases – July 2016

An illustration for the July issue of the Lancet for an article titled,’Can treatment as prevention eliminate
HIV at country level?’ The article focused on how giving antiretroviral drugs to HIV positive individuals so that their viral load is too low to transmit the disease to others can impact on a country’s HIV epidemic. This has been tested in Denmark and is being proposed as a treatment in sub-Saharan Africa.
