Can we end AIDS?

Dr. Flash talks about how advances like PrEP and treatment as prevention have brought us closer than ever to ending the AIDS epidemic.

When taken as prescribed, antirerovirals (ARVs), the medications used to treat HIV, prevents transmission of the virus. This is known as treatment as prevention.

In addition, PrEP is a major advance in HIV prevention. This once daily pill offers those who do not have HIV another powerful means of protection.

While there is no cure for HIV, we have the tools today that could lead to the end of the disease.
