AIDS Researchers Gather In Washington

Twenty five thousand AIDS experts and activists will descend on Washington DC this weekend for the International Aids Conference.

It’s the world’s largest conference on HIV/AIDS, and the first time in a generation that it’s been held on American soil.

Advancements in treatment have made HIV a manageable disease in the U.S. The rate of infection has remained steady over the last decade or so, but there are hot spots in some urban areas such as Washington DC, where the infection rate rivals many African countries.

Guests:

  • Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
  • Tracy Jarrett, GlobalPost correspondent
