AIDS

Positive thinking : “Little wonder that when nearly 6000 experts on HIV and AIDS from 133 nations gathered in Sydney this week for the fourth International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention, they buzzed.”

We must remain ever vigilant with diseases like this, but the remarkable progress we have made is because we have dared to deal with it. We had a really difficult time getting everyome onside, but it is a disease which quite clearly we have the capacity to manage. The recent research is heartening and even though it will be cold comfort to those who have lost people to AIDS we can at least be reassured that by hauling as a team and supporting the research programmes we have come to the point in time where where we can think positively about it. A vaccine would be brilliant!
