Clinton Speech Provides New Hope for Creating an AIDS-Free Generation (U.S. Department of State)
Secretary Clinton outlined an ambitious goal of creating an AIDS-free generation through the use of an evidence-based combination prevention approach relying on three key interventions: eliminating mother-to-child transmission, expanding voluntary medical male circumcision, and scaling up treatment as prevention.

Structural Approaches Are Key to an Effective Global AIDS Response (Global Public Health)
According to the Social Drivers Working Group of the aids 2031 initiative, structural approaches are still lacking in the global response to HIV and AIDS. This report offers six key recommendations for operationalizing structural approaches at both the global and national levels.

Efficacy and Effectiveness of Treatment as Prevention (AIDS Education and Prevention)
Kippax and colleagues argue that more effort must be spent on strengthening connections between biomedical and behavioral interventions. For example, behavioral issues such as the acceptability and adoption of annual testing and the sustained use of antiretrovirals over time must be addressed to capitalize on the efficacious prevention strategy of "test and treat."
