HIV/AIDS Experts Convene to Fight Disease

Health professionals, advocates and HIV/AIDS scientists who gathered last week in Mystic, CT for the inaugural New England HIV Implementation Science Network all agreed on one thing: more needs to be done. The symposium was the launch pad for CIRA's new focus on implementation science in small urban areas. The Network aims to improve HIV prevention and treatment in small urban centers with high prevalence of HIV.

"We have the knowledge we need to get to zero [infections]. Why can we stop smallpox and not HIV?" Yale School of Public Health Dean Paul Cleary said to the gathering in his opening remarks. "We've got to do better than we have. We can really challenge this epidemic in a way that we haven’t before."
