AIDS is a continuing worldwide health crisis. Over 25,000,000 people have died from AIDS, and more than 33,000,000 are infected today. While treatments in the developed world have moved AIDS from a fatal to a chronic, highly expensive disease, it remains the sixth greatest cause of death globally and most of those infected in the developing world don't have access to treatments. Here, the AIDS 2031 Commission's experts report on the first 50 years of the AIDS pandemic: the 30 years that have passed since AIDS was first diagnosed, and the prospects and best plans to address the ongoing worldwide AIDS epidemic over the coming 20 years. The authors address the entire scope of the pandemic: basic science, public health, funding, treatment options, and social and societal impacts and review the full range of possible and recommended responses over the next two decades. They carefully assess the progress that has been made, and both persistent and emerging challenges. Written to be easily understandable by all readers, this book is the single best source of reliable information on where the pandemic stands today, where it's headed, and what can be done to create better outcomes between now and 2031.
