Abstract

As we approach the third decade of the AIDS epidemic, HIV is still considered a new and complex disease for which there is no cure. As such, it presents unique challenges for research. In this article, GEOFFREY SETSWE reviews the status of HIV and AIDS research, and asks whether AIDS is over-researched.
