A drug to cure the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can be invented in a few years. About this “Interfax” said the head of the Federal scientific-methodological center for the fight and prevention of HIV Vadim Pokrovsky.
“I think in a few years these healing methods will appear. The question is rather how much they will cost, and how quickly you can make them cheap and affordable for everyone,” he explained.
Pokrovsky said that Russia, the probability of the epidemic on African, where HIV is spread heterosexually. In his opinion, very bad that the Ministry of health does not recognize the scale of the threat and avoids the word “epidemic”.
