Research on Aids and HIV

Although a huge amount of research has already been done on the treatment and containment of Aids and HIV, a cure for it has still not been found. Since new discoveries are constantly reported in the media, it is impossible to keep information current - and your best source is daily news, radio and television updates.

Side effects of certain HIV / Aids drug treatments

Another problem with cutting edge research on Aids and HIV is that when some drugs and treatments are released, they are just as quickly withdrawn from use when undesirable side effects are reported.

A problem with the study into this field is the urgency in which it is undertaken, as millions of people are already infected with the virus and thousands of people die daily of it, or related diseases. The price of any new medicine and treatments are also high since the research and development of such compounds are expensive.

The question of price does pose a moral question - especially for poorer countries and communities. Is it correct for pharmaceutical companies to charge high prices for their newly developed drugs, and if not, who should bear the cost.

The ultimate cost of this virus will only be felt much later in this new century as it is effectively causing genocide in the world at large, which will impact on the economy of each and other nation on this planet.

Maybe for this reason, all governments should bear the cost of fighting this deadly disease, as all countries, irrespective of their geological location or interaction in the international arena, will feel the global effect that this virus is wreaking.

Approved drugs and treatments for HIV / Aids infection

At the time of writing this particular page, the following were approved drugs and treatments available for the treatment of the virus and related diseases. They are all now seen as "old" drugs, but it is still interesting to see the range of drugs and treatments that were developed to help fight this worldwide problem.
