9:11 pm
been reading the research so explain these findings to us these are drugs that have existed for a while right that's right these are now the standard treatment for people living with hiv aids or cold antiretroviral drugs and they basically suppress the levels of h.i.v. in the blood and basically what these findings show you is if that everyone in the world had access to days everyone in the world without chinese around just under forty million people if they had access to these drugs then there would be no. new cases of hiv in this study looked at a thousand gay couples one of whom in the partnership was hiv negative in the other one was hiv positive and was taking maize drugs and over and you period when these when these partners were having sex without a condom there was no not a single instance of hiv being passed from hiv positive to the hiv negative and now the study authors say this means people living with hiv aids who are on
9:12 pm
effective treatment cannot pos on the virus to this sexual partners and they can say this definitively now because these backs up existing research that was done on heterosexual couples does this mean there's a cure for aids hiv now or is that something that people can't say i know you cannot say there's a cure like i said these drugs these antiretroviral drugs they they suppress the virus to undetectible levels but it doesn't mean that there is a cure or these drugs are things you need to take on an ongoing basis so you mention this a little bit but what does this mean for people who are living with hiv going forward now this means basically around the world people with hiv suffer from stigma and discrimination and i guess the stigma hasn't caught up with the advances in modern medicine that have taken place over the last thirty years where now in twenty nineteen you can take these antiretrovirals and expect to live
9:13 pm
a perfectly normal healthy life and not worry about having to try to pass the virus on to your partner and if this this helps stigma if you know that people know that if you're on the drugs and i can't receive the virus then then that helps to reduce stigma and that's what these study authors are so this sounds so simple why can't we just give everyone at h.l.v. the proper treatment what's still standing in the way so are they there are these social issues like stigma and like just. but there are also very practical reasons too about access to testing and treatment it's estimated that of all the people with hiv the only fifty nine percent of them have access to treatment and so i guess what these findings show is that it's time to to put things into gear so that everyone with with the virus can can receive the treatment absolutely jared read a reporter for us on the story thank you so much. to the bundesliga now where
