HIV Today: What’s Encouraging; What’s Discouraging

HIV Today: What’s Encouraging; What’s Discouraging

Lee Jacobs, MD

Winter 2008 - Volume 12 Number 1

This and the next few issues of The Permanente Journal will have several excerpts from presentations at the 2007 Fifth National Kaiser Permanente (KP) HIV/AIDS, STD, and Hepatitis Conference held in April in Napa, CA.
I remember the first HIV meeting held in the mid1980s: it was the first interregional conference convened by KP on a clinical topic. I doubt anyone attending that meeting could have foreseen the tragic impact this virus would have on people throughout the world.
