Mapping HIV viral loads

Innovative research out of the city of San Fransisco.

A team of researchers, led by Dr. Moupali Das-Douglas, have mapped HIV patients by their viral load – this in an attempt to locate ‘hot spots’ where patients have high viral loads, and thus low access to treatment. This information can now be used to guide policy makers in allocating resources for both treatment and prevention programmes.

Let’s keep our eyes out for the corresponding article and to see what action the City takes in light of these data.
