Pills Aren't Enough

Trump’s bid to end HIV transmission in America by 2030 could miss the mark by focusing too narrowly on medical approaches, advocates warn.
Medicines like antiretrovirals and pre-exposure prophylaxis are needed and available, but many populations most in need are missing out. Broad inequities like poverty, homelessness, substance use, and profound stigma mean huge swaths of Americans at risk for HIV are largely invisible and/or outside of care systems.
“Eradicating the virus will need to look less like a science experiment and more like a broad social welfare program,” writes Sarah Karlin-Smith.
