Can’t go to bed without noting the sobering reminder in today’s papers that what is arguably the greatest preventable catastrophe in human history is only getting worse. In just a few years I have no doubt that people will look back at the 1990s and early 2000s and hang their heads in shame, as we sat by while tens of millions of people died of a disease that can be both prevented and treated. Indeed the global HIV/AIDS crisis is as much about poverty as it is about public health. Here is an excellent paper by a good friend of mine on how to mobilise more global resources to address this most pressing of issues.
