Achieving a Sustainable End to AIDS Will Require HIV Vaccine, Says Anthony S. Fauci of NIAID

Although antiretroviral treatment and current prevention options have considerably reduced HIV infections and AIDS-related deaths, a safe and effective vaccine is needed to end the global AIDS pandemic expeditiously and sustainably, according to a new commentary from Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), and colleague Hilary D. Marston, M.D., M.P.H., in The New England Journal of Medicine.
