To the Editor: In their Commentary, Drs Dieffenbach and Fauci1 were optimistic that universally available HIV testing and treatment with ART could significantly curtail HIV epidemics. Trials are currently investigating the potential efficacy of this approach. Unfortunately, it seems that the behavioral ramifications of ART for prevention were not fully appreciated by Dieffenbach and Fauci.
