HIV: Innovative Solutions on the Road to Victory
3 June 2021
11:15—12:30
The COVID-19 pandemic made healthcare all over the world transfer significant resources to fight the novel infection. However, it also intensified the prominence of infectious epidemics as a whole: today, HIV still takes millions of human lives. The medical community all over the world is working on finding innovative solutions that aside from stopping life-threatening infections, could also bring the patients back to a meaningful and comfortable life. Scientific research for preventing the spread of HIV has been marked by a number of breakthrough discoveries. Scientists have learned a lot about the genetic structure of the immune deficit virus and there is now a high probability of learning how to stop its spread. However, despite significant progress in treating HIV, development of an effective vaccine still remains a priority for the global scientific and medical community. Today, scientists in Russia and worldwide have made an important step forward in developing the vaccine; it may be that in the future these discoveries will be able to make humans resistant to the immune deficit virus.
● Will the experience of struggle against the SARS-CoV-2 virus become a spring board for explosive growth of scientific research in the fight against infectious epidemics, in particular, the HIV infection?
● What are the most advanced and ground-breaking scientific discoveries and innovative solutions in preventive immunization and HIV infection treatment these days in Russia and worldwide?
● Will the COVID-19 pandemic change the government strategy for fighting the spread of HIV infection and other socially significant diseases?
● What government policies will help stimulate development and manufacture of innovative drugs in Russia?
● What regulatory decisions can promote timely access of HIV patients to the therapy they need and to innovative therapeutic technologies?
● How can the effectiveness of measures to reduce the number of new HIV diagnoses and AIDS mortality be improved?
● Can one say that victory over socially significant infections is only a matter of time?
