HIV and AIDS in 2030: A Choice Between Two Futures
Foreword by Jonathan D. Quick, MD, MPH, Author, The End of Epidemics
HIV and AIDS in 2030: A Choice Between Two Futures tells the story of the future of HIV and AIDS. In fact, it is a story about two very different futures; one in which HIV and AIDS have made a strong resurgence during the 2020’s, and one in which HIV and AIDS have been eliminated as threats to public health by 2030. In each future, there will be an AIDS conference with a panel of experts looking back on the fifty-year history of HIV and AIDS. But what will the panelists say? If HIV and AIDS have made a strong resurgence in the 2020s, the panel will be called How We Lost the War Against AIDS, and the panelists will focus on the mistakes that led to a tragic humanitarian failure. But if HIV and AIDS are no longer threats to public health, the panel will be called How We Won the War Against AIDS, and the panelists will celebrate the wise decisions that led to a remarkable humanitarian triumph. Which future will we see? Now is the time to choose.
