Statement of Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases National Institutes of Health on National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness and Information Day February 7, 2009

Excerpt:

“Treatment is no substitute for prevention, however. NIAID-funded investigators are working to develop and validate new methods to protect against HIV infection, including microbicides that could be applied vaginally or rectally before sex; antiretroviral drug regimens that could be used to prevent infection in people who are at high risk of becoming infected with HIV; and, of course, vaccines to prevent HIV infection.”
