Eric seems disappointed that HIV prevalence has not fallen, but does he realize that prevalence falls when people die? So we are very happy that prevalence has not fallen as access to ARV treatment has kept people alive and improve their quality of life. This week in Cape Town, 20 teams from mostly health Ministries came to use all we know to save lives. Senegal decided to go national with SMS reminders to increase HIV adherence among HIV patients. This will save more lives.
