Fifteen years ago, the BC-CfE, along with partners around the world, developed today’s gold standard for HIV medication: highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART).
The BC-CfE’s groundbreaking research has discovered that treating HIV with HAART not only improves the health of people with HIV, but also prevents people from passing the disease on to others.
Today, with the support of the BC Provincial Government, UNAIDS, the World Health Organization, and many others the BC-CfE is launching Seek and Treat for Optimal Prevention of HIV/AIDS (STOP HIV/AIDS) Pilot Project. The WHO has declared that with global uptake this initiative would stop 95% of all new HIV cases within 10 years.
This made-in-B.C. strategy would have the potential to save more than 7 million lives by 2050.
