A group of HIV researchers and medical ethicists gathered for a session titled “Trials of HIV Treatment as Prevention: Ethics and Science”. In many cases, antiretroviral treatment has kept viral loads low enough to prevent infection of the HIV-negative partner. Despite those encouraging examples, Max Essex (left), who is conducting a trial in 30 communities in Botswana, said little is known about how people in the general community will behave. Essex spoke with Deenan Pillay of of the Wellcome Trust Africa Centre for Health and Population in South Africa.
