Company Updates

  • People who are most vulnerable to #HIV, including transgender women, often face difficult barriers to accessing prevention and care, including stigma and discrimination. Help replace stigma with science by spreading facts about HIV. Watch this video with Blossom from the Los Angeles LGBT Center and talk to a healthcare provider for more information on your sexual health: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vM4lX. #SpreadFactsNotFear

  • The increasing availability of effective #HIV treatments within low and middle-income countries has produced encouraging signs of progress, yet there is more work to be done to fight the epidemic. Our VP of Access Operations and Emerging Markets, Papa Salif Sow, expands on this global-scale effort to improve access in this month’s issue of New Scientist: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQwXY.

    The global treatment plan helping to control the HIV epidemic

    ADVERTISING FEATURE The impact of HIV in Africa in the 1990s and 2000s was profound. "It was a horrendous time," says Kenly Sikwese, who has lived in Zambia for most of his life. One report found that, in 1999 alone, 5.4 million people were infected and 2.8 million died.
