“Three decades into the global AIDS pandemic, science has finally developed tools to constrict the torrent of new infections to a trickle. We have the public health tools to do this in Africa, where AIDS is worst. In effect, we can end AIDS as an epidemic, and transform it into a manageable health problem. This opportunity is revolutionary, especially in Africa, where the disease has orphaned millions of children and undermined the economy and government budgets. Yet I have found that many people who work in HIV -- let alone those in global development in general -- don’t grasp the astonishing opportunity science has given us. So I will try to explain this revolution, and in so doing discuss, at least a little, the interplay between research, activism, and journalism.”
