More than 90,000 people are currently living with HIV in the UK and globally an estimated 33.3 million people have HIV. More than 25 million people between 1981 and 2007 have died from the virus, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history. On December 1st, we celebrated World AIDS day, a day where people worldwide had the opportunity to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died.



This week on Health Justice Radio we talk about current developments in AIDS treatments and researcher with Dr. Mark Wainberg. Dr. Wainberg is a prominent Canadian AIDS researcher and activist. He was former President of the International AIDS Society and was instrumental in founding the Canadian Association for HIV research. Dr. Wainberg and his collaborators were the first to identify the antiviral capabilities of 3TC or Lamivudine, a first-line drug in HIV therapy in 1989. He is currently the Director of the McGill University AIDS Centre at the Montreal Jewish General Hospital where he is also a Professor of Medicine and Microbiology.
