  • Understanding HIV Treatment

    There have been many advances on the HIV medication front since the days when "monotherapy" (such as AZT) was the standard protocol for treating the disease. Today, several medications are often conviently combined into one pill - known as "combination therapy" or "Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART) - which greatly increases the likelihood that patients will adhere to their treatment regimens. Patients can also choose from many different classes of medications to find the drug (or drugs) that best fit their lifestyle and have few, if any, side effects.

  • Left out in the cold: Living with HIV in Russia - Talk to Al Jazeera: In the Field

    Russia, the largest country on earth, which emerged from the post-Soviet economic and political chaos to reassert itself, is facing an HIV/Aids epidemic. The current rate of HIV is less than 1 percent of Russia's population of 143 million. It's far lower than many other countries, such as South Africa (12,2 percent), which have been battling HIV epidemics. Russia has one of the fastest-growing rates of HIV/Aids in the world. At the beginning of this year, the number of registered HIV-positive people surpassed one million. The number of Russians living with HIV has almost doubled in the last five years. The 2016 UNAIDS Prevention Gap Report pointed to Eastern Europe and Central Asia as "the only region in the world where the HIV epidemic continued to rise rapidly." Russian activists say...

Russia, the largest country on earth, which emerged from the post-Soviet economic and political chaos to reassert itself, is facing an HIV/Aids epidemic. The current rate of HIV is less than 1 percent of Russia's population of 143 million. It's far lower than many other countries, such as South Africa (12,2 percent), which have been battling HIV epidemics. Russia has one of the fastest-growing rates of HIV/Aids in the world. At the beginning of this year, the number of registered HIV-positive people surpassed one million. The number of Russians living with HIV has almost doubled in the last five years. The 2016 UNAIDS Prevention Gap Report pointed to Eastern Europe and Central Asia as "the only region in the world where the HIV epidemic continued to rise rapidly." Russian activists say the government's reluctance to introduce internationally-accepted prevention methods is behind this epidemic. Potential solutions such as sex education, the distribution of condoms to sex workers, methadone therapy and the availability of clean needles to drug addicts are strongly opposed by religious leaders and other conservatives. It is estimated that over 50 percent of HIV cases in Russia are the result of intravenous drug use. Methadone therapy, however, was made illegal by President Vladimir Putin's government despite being classified as "the most promising method of reducing drug dependency" by the World Health Organization. Talk to Al Jazeera travels to St Petersburg and Moscow to meet people living with HIV and the activists doing all they can to help. In St Petersburg, we meet Aleksandr Romanov, 47, who discovered that he was HIV-positive six years ago. He grew up in Kazakhstan, then part of the Soviet Union. He says his infection can be traced back to the post-Soviet effects on society - dramatic changes, which included widespread drug use. Maria Yakovleva, also known as Masha, is part of Svecha, or Candle Foundation, an organisation which provides support, guidance, education, and hope to those living with HIV. She herself is HIV-positive. Changes need to come from the top, she says. "There are plenty of things [people need to know] but there is no information [from the government]," she says. Maksim Malyshev works as a social worker with a local NGO in Moscow which promotes humane drug policies. He worries about the negative impact that the government's approach has on Russians living with HIV. He can't understand whether Russia's leadership simple doesn't care or is just incompetent. "In my view the problem of HIV infection in Russia exists because the people whose job it is to find ways of preventing HIV in Russia are doing a crap job. They are living in some kind of fantasy world of their own and they have no desire to listen about science-based methods and to the specialists who are working on this problem," he says. "Either these people are hypocrites who don't care about the thousands of people who get infected with HIV and die, or they are simply too stupid to research the HIV prevention information in order to ascertain what is and isn't working and to resolve this problem." The government needs to wake up to a problem that has long been urgent, he believes.

Five HIV patients left 'virus-free' with no need for daily drugs in early vaccine trials. Researchers combined two new HIV vaccines with a drug usually used to treat cancer. A new vaccine-based treatment for HIV has succeeded in suppressing the virus in five patients, raising hopes further research could help prevent Aids without the need for daily drugs. Researchers combined two innovative HIV vaccines with a drug usually used to treat cancer in the trial, conducted over three years at the IrsiCaixa Aids Research Institute in Barcelona. After receiving the treatment, the virus was undetectable in five out of 24 participants and its spread was stopped by their immune systems, reported the New Scientist. One of them has been drug-free for seven months. Lead scientist Beatriz Mothe said her team was “on the right path” to developing a treatment which could offer an alternative to daily antiretroviral medication (ART). Around 18 million people – half of all those living with HIV around the world – take ART to slow the progression of the infection, according to the UN. But these drugs are expensive and can cause unpleasant side effects. Patients have to remember to take them every day, sometimes over their entire lives. Mitchell Warren, executive director of the Aids Vaccine Advocacy Coalition (Avac), said the study had been carried out on a small scale but its findings were “interesting and important”. “Long-term systems that don’t require daily pill taking could really help accelerate getting 37 million people with HIV undetectable and not infectious – that would be a great opportunity to turn the tide on the epidemic,” he told The Independent. Mr Warren said this was an example of a therapeutic vaccine, for people already infected with the disease, as opposed to preventative immunization for diseases such as polio or mumps and measles. “The idea of a therapeutic vaccine that could provide ongoing control of the virus without having to take a pill every day would be a huge advance,” he said. Dr. Mothe and her team gave the patients, all recently diagnosed with HIV, two vaccines designed to stimulate the production of white blood cells which can recognize and destroy cells that have been infected by the virus. The trial participants continued to take ART for three years, while the researchers monitored their immune responses. Then 15 of the participants received a booster dose of one of the vaccines and a cancer drug called romidepsin, which has been shown to ‘flush out’ the HIV virus from tissues where it can lie dormant. The virus quickly returned and began to spread again in 10 of these patients, who resumed taking ART, but five of them have maintained suppression of viral load to below the limit of detection for the test, meaning they have not had to take daily drugs for a number of weeks, and in one case for seven months. In 2015, providing ART to patients in low to middle-income countries cost $19 billion (£15 billion), according to the New Scientist, meaning huge savings could be possible if further research is successful. More than 100,000 people are living with HIV in the UK, according to the Terrence Higgins Trust.

But thanks to new prevention treatment called PrEP, could the epidemic finally be contained? PrEP was approved by the United States government two years ago and is used widely, but the pill is not yet registered in Europe. Originally released as a treatment for HIV sufferers, the drug was then found to be effective in actually preventing the infection. "Once you take this pill daily, you have protection up to 99% effective against HIV", HIV Counselor Kenneth explains. The drug is already changing lives. Poppy is married to an HIV positive man and by taking PrEP she was able to become pregnant and give birth to a healthy baby without becoming infected herself. But the treatment is not without critics, like President of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Michael Weinstein. He explains: "People will think they're protected when they're not.". As a pilot project is scheduled to start soon in The Netherlands, the controversy shows no signs of dying away yet.
