Science Speaks: Global HIV, TB and Ebola Research and Responses
May was a month of breaking news and developments in global HIV, tuberculosis and Ebola research and responses. Science Speaks, the official blog of the Center for Global Health Policy, covered them with:
  • Reporting on the launch of the first clinical trial to test an all-oral treatment regimen for extensively drug resistant tuberculosis;
  • A review of World Health Organization Director General Margaret Chan’s call for improved emergency health preparedness in wake of the agency’s delayed Ebola response;
  • Analysis on the ramifications of findings from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease-sponsored START trial, which saw illness rates among people living with HIV more than double with delayed antiretroviral treatment initiation.
Stay tuned: Science Speaks will provide live coverage of the 8th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention, where additional news on START and other pivotal research will be featured.
