This advocacy piece from the International AIDS Society argues that without sufficient treatment coverage, investments in HIV treatment and prevention will have only limited impact. Therefore, maximising coverage is the most sustainable response. By limiting new infections in the next five years, treatment costs that would otherwise continue to accrue for decades can be avoided. The author uses mathematical models to show that the potential of HIV treatment as prevention is high. It is only the most ambitious scenario - US $20 billion for Global Fund - which could put the world on track to achieve universal access and the Millenium Goals.
