Staying Alive

An AIDS vaccine should be our government's highest priority. So why is one researcher forced to seek funding from the War on Terrorism?

So vaccine research faces a financial gauntlet, even though preventing AIDS through vaccines would be vastly cheaper than caring for the 14,000 who will contract HIV today. And tomorrow, and the next day, and for the foreseeable future.

In a world where 40 million people are infected with HIV, and 5 million more contract the virus every year, and where every year, 3 million of them die, it's nice to have a financial sharpie on our side.
