HIV first appeared over 30 years ago and began to spread rapidly across the globe, since all the efforts of scientists were intended to develop effective drugs against this disease. The victory in the HIV and AIDS is one of the main purposes for mankind and the latest scientific findings indicate that scientists are close to it.
At an international conference on the discussion of HIV and AIDS, Michel Sidibe, UN Deputy Secretary General said that by 2030 the epidemic of HIV in the world is finished. According to Mr Sidibé, now we can say with certainty, one of the goals of the United Nations Program on HIV / AIDS provides a zero mortality rate among people with HIV and AIDS patients, as well as the complete elimination of new infections.
In his statement, Mishel Sidibe noted that a few years ago, hopes for the emergence of AIDS drugs were not, patients were dying, hospitals are overcrowded and doctors could not give hope to terminally ill people. However, until 2015 it managed to get closer to the implementation of UN programs and provide drugs to 15 million people. In addition, there have been changes in the scientific basis of HIV infection - all previously infected with HIV received about 18 medications daily, but today the number of medicines reduced to just one tablet a day. But a special achievement, according to Sidibe, is to reduce the cost of drugs to HIV and AIDS worldwide. Based on all this, we can assume that in the coming years the situation has radically changed and scientists will find a cure for HIV and stop the epidemic. Sidibé said,
By that time waits for the appearance of a cure for HIV and the founder of the world famous company «Microsoft» Bill Geyts. It will be recalled that Gates has spared millions of dollars in the development of drugs against the disease and generously funded research projects in this area. He and his wife founded the Foundation, which is funding the research methods of fighting not only HIV but also other serious diseases, which are currently considered incurable.
At the forum in Switzerland, Bill Geyts gave a speech in which he spoke about the future of technology. According to him, mankind will forget about this terrible disease in 15 years, as in the next few years, scientists have developed effective drugs for human immunodeficiency virus .
HIV was discovered in 1983 in two different laboratories - in France and the United States, the results of their research scientists have published in a scientific publication in May of the same year. A new retrovirus could be cultured in T-lymphocytes and scientists have suggested that the virus is able to trigger the development of AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
Initially, the French and American experts have given different names and found the virus only after 3 years it became known that viruses are discovered in different laboratories are genetically identical and new retrovirus called HIV.
The virus is transmitted from infected person's body fluids (blood, seminal fluid, semen, breast milk, and the like), - through the damaged skin or mucosa.
