Since an early report1 that presaged
a global catastrophe, millions of deaths due to an incurable disease now known
as AIDS have been reported.2,3 Even
in a country with substantial resources to combat the disease, new cases continue
to occur.4 However, awe-inspiring progress
is evident in the development of powerful drugs5,6 that
prolong life in individuals with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection
and in the number of programs in place to prevent additional infections and
positive developments are tempered by the reality that huge gaps exist in
access to effective therapies.3
