New on AVAC’s blog, P-Values
— Cindra Feuer
writes about a recent gathering of big wigs in the world of HIV and the squirm-inducing message they heard about how to end epidemic
from economist Jeffrey Sachs at a meeting of the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC).
writes about the founding of a new collaboration in Zambia
that will spearhead PrEP advocacy for MSM. The newly formed group, Zambia Key Populations Biomedical Advocacy,
is one of several efforts among Africa’s gay communities to organize for their health rights in general, and for HIV prevention in particular.
And check out these additional blog posts
from last month’s HIV Research for Prevention Conference
, where a few of our advocacy partners in Kenya, Malawi and the US offer invaluable insights about where the science and communities need to meet.
Finally, don’t miss AVAC’s blog post on PLoS ONE’s special issue
covering all things VMMC (Voluntary Male Medical Circumcision)
. There is much to trumpet about VMMC as HIV prevention, including new souped-up mathematical models showing just how this intervention could help turn the tide of the epidemic within 15 years.
